18th March

A return to wintry weather with frequent light snow showers in a cold and strong easterly wind. There was not much to report from the area with a drake Scaup passing the Point, the regular Glaucous Gull and two Mediterranean Gulls at the Patch and two Firecrests and a Mistle Thrush on the land.

One Porpoise was seen offshore.

The biggest surprise of the day was at Dengemarsh Gully where not one but two male White-spotted Bluethroats were found and often gave outstanding views to their admirers.
