Friday 29th April

The birders from Lancashire who had seen the Lapland Bunting yesterday, had seen 2 Cuckoos up behind Port Charlotte as well as a pair of Hen Harriers this afternoon. John from Whitley Bay yesterday had seen a pair of Chough and a Peregrine on the sea cliffs as well as 8 pairs of breeding Fulmar. Later on they had a Golden Eagle high up on a thermal. Back at the cottage where they are staying they had a male Cuckoo calling. Today, they had been over in the Ballygrant area, and had heard a pair of Sedge Warblers and a Grasshopper Warbler, also a single Whitethroat in the wood at Lossit Farm along with a great viewing of a female Cuckoo. On the way back to Bridgend they saw a Redstart. Finally back at their cottage the male Hen Harrier was out quartering the field.
