8th Mar

A miserable, damp and foggy day. The surprising highlight was a Sooty Shearwater which flew very close along the beach to the west this morning. The two Iceland Gulls were still at the Patch and the first-winter Caspian Gull was at the Fish Hut again.
The two Grey Wagtails were still around the water treatment works inside the power station with the male even singing at times.

Three Porpoises were also seen.
