31st March

With clear skies and light winds there was a general clear out of the grounded migrants but even so there were still 30 Firecrests, 12 Chiffchaffs and a Blackcap in the area. A Bullfinch at the Long Pits was of note (no records in 2015) as was a small passage of finches which included a Brambling and 14 Siskins. Two Buzzards were also seen during the morning.
The sea was very quiet with just two Mediterranean Gulls of interest.

Six Porpoises were feeding offshore and a Badger and a Brown Hare were seen on the land.
