Still cold, still windy!

A few sunny spells, 9º, fresh W.

Land migrants were almost non-existent today, a couple of Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff and a Spotted Flycatcher.
The sea provided a few goodies but they were few and far between, three Pomarine Skua, six Arctic Skua, one Great Skua, one Red-throated Diver, a Great Northern Diver, two Balearic Shearwater and just a few Manx Shearwater, Gannet and Kittiwake.

Around a dozen Swift and twenty plus Swallow in and I missed the Serin that graced the garden briefly!
The coldest and windiest May I’ve known here at Portland and one of the quietest for migration. Still there is always next time.
