10th March

After yesterdays quality seawatching today was totally the opposite with hardly a bird moving through although producing the questionable "bird of the day" in the form of a Black Swan which was seen swimming on the sea on several occasions. An adult Mediterranean Gull was feeding at the Patch.
There were a few early migrants on the land including a Chiffchaff, a new Firecrest, a Fieldfare, 40 Redwings, 15 Meadow Pipits, 16 Chaffinches and four Siskins

Two Porpoises were also seen.
