With the switch to a southeasterly airflow combined with light rain that eventually cleared for an hour or so mid-afternoon, today proved a little disappointing with very little new seen in the way of passerine migrants.

The overnight switch from a southeasterly to northwesterly airflow failed to deliver too much although I did see my first two Bonxies of the year. It was good to see Kevin Kelly but despite our best efforts we failed to find any sign of the Night Heron today.
