21st March

A calm day for a change but still very little to get excited about. The highlight on the land was a short-staying 'Continental' Coal Tit with just a Woodcock, six Chiffchaffs and two Firecrests as back up. 
Brent Geese moved through in good numbers again with 1200 seen along with 159 Red-throated Divers and a handful of duck which included a Tufted Duck. Four Sandwich Terns were also seen.

Five Porpoises and a Common Seal were offshore.
