Over 100 species of birds recorded on Arran in April

April is the month when spring migration gets under way, with arrivals and departures of birds, all seeking their best breeding territories. This April was an interesting, almost ‘four season’ month with a wide range of temperatures and other weather conditions. While there were short, dry, settled spells, it was wetter than April 2015 and the end of the month saw northerly winds and snow on the hills. The impact on migrating birds heading north seemed to be to hold them up. For example, there were widespread reports of wheatear including 36 in Sliddery on 23 April. Many of these were the larger Greenland wheatear waiting for more southerly winds to help them head for Greenland and northern Canada.
