Most of the grounded migrants were concentrated between the Observatory and Point with excellent totals of ten Woodcocks and 25 Firecrests of note along with 20 Goldcrests, a "Continental" Coal Tit, 20 Chiffchaffs, 90 Redwings, nine Fieldfares, a Stonechat and a Wheatear at the fishing boat whilst a trickle of finches passing overhead included five Siskins.

Since my posting yesterday I have been told that a Wheatear was seen on 17th. However, it remains the case that they have been extremely late to arrive with only two individuals in the recording area so far this spring,
Three Porpoises were seen offshore.
