20th Mar

A thoroughly miserable day of strong, cold winds and almost constant heavy drizzle. The morning seawatch produced 524 Brent Geese east, 22 Fulmars and three Sandwich Terns west whilst three Mediterranean Gulls, a Yellow-legged Gull, two Caspian Gulls and the two regular Iceland Gulls where feeding at the Patch.
A check of the Long Pits produced nine Chiffchaffs and four Wheatears were seen near the Lighthouse Station.

Three Porpoises were also seen.
