27th March

There were still lots of Firecrest around the Point with at least 70 seen although it seems likely that most of these birds were part of yesterdays arrival rather than new birds freshly arriving. Other grounded migrants included 11 Goldcrests and 33 Chiffchaffs but other species remain scarce with just two Woodcocks and three Wheatears of note.
Seawatching saw another decent movement of Brent Geese with 1200 passing through as well as the first Manx Shearwater of the year, 167 Common Scoters, two Great Skuas and four Mediterranean Gulls

A Porpoise and two Brown Hares were seen.
