Well April started a little windy but continued dry with generally warm days and cold nights with an occasional frosty morning with the wind coming in from the North-Northeast which isn't the best for migration and it was slow going around the harbour but we met our challenge and recorded 105 species for April with a few highlight.

The next day and a half was a period of catching up with things at home mainly jobs around the garden but we had reports of a couple of Nightingale that had been heard singing in the harbour area. So we thought we would try some after dinner birding with the recording equipment and see if we could hear at least one of them. We did locate one and I managed to get a little recording of it singing unfortunately there is a little vehicle noise in the background but hopefully that will not distract too much.
