21st Mar

A bright and sunny but still cold and windy day. Very little movement offshore except for the 13 Sandwich Terns and three Mediterranean Gulls moving west (and a further two birds seen during the day) and one of the first-winter Iceland Gulls at the Patch.
A few grounded migrants included three Firecrest, one in the Lighthouse Garden and two in the trapping area, and 25 Chiffchaffs - mostly around the Long Pits. A handful of birds also passed overhead including a few Chaffinches and Linnets and five Siskins.

Three Porpoises were seen.
