20th March

Plenty of coverage today but still no sign of any Wheatears or very much else on the land for that matter with just two Woodcocks, three Firecrests and six Chiffchaffs of note. A Hen Harrier also flew out to sea in the morning.

The sea was very quiet except for large numbers of feeding gulls which included two Mediterranean Gulls and a steady trickle of Red-throated Divers and Gannets.

A Grey Seal, a Common Seal and seven Porpoises were feeding offshore and two Brown Hares were seen on the land.
