25th April 2016

A slow few days, with an unhelpful northerly airflow setting in and new arrivals thin on the ground. A Cuckoo to the south of Primrose Valley today was the first of the year, while hailstorms brought 140+ Swallows to the Dams yesterday; several more Whitethroats are now on territory alongside good numbers of other warblers and 12 Lesser Black-backed Gulls yesterday has been the pick of sea passage.
