7th March

Having returned last night from a superb two-week break in Costa Rica it was hard to get very motivated today! The best of the birds reported were three Black Redstarts and a party of five Long-tailed Tits (possibly migrants) at Westbeach Cottage. The sea was quiet.

The most significant arrival of the day was David Campbell to take up his position as Assistant Warden for the next eight months. We hope he enjoys his time here.

Finally, thanks to Jake Everitt for maintaining the website in my absence.
