4th Mar

A much quieter day offshore but at least 300 Brent Geese flew east, an Eider and 73 Kittiwakes flew west and a total of 21 Mediterranean Gulls were seen during the day. Both of the regular Iceland Gulls and an adult Little Gull were feeding at the Patch in the morning.
The first three migrant Chiffchaffs were seen and a (the) Firecrest was in the Observatory front garden. The Grey Wagtail was still in the power station complex and a trickle of birds passing overhead included two Redwings, a few Chaffinches, two Goldfinches and five Siskins.

Porpoises were very obvious in the calm conditions this morning with a minimum of seven being seen.
