08/04/23 Serin

Light NW winds and sunshine with a cloud bank moving in from the East and my first Yellow Wagtail of the year in off the sea first thing. 2 Swallows and 3 House martins did the same thing followed by the highlight – a Serin which came straight over the cliff right in front of Michael Mcnaghten and I as we walked east from Fan bay.

The bird dropped into the gorse then flew another 100m and perched in the blackthorn above the entrance to the deep shelter. Brief views of it here before if carried on West, a dull female but nice still.

3 Brambling flew North, small numbers of Siskin and perhaps 150 chaffinches. 4 White Wagtails and a Red kite were also noted.
