23rd Mar

With a light onshore breeze most of the interest today was at sea where there there was a big movement of Brent Geese with over 2300 passing through. Variety was otherwise fairly limited with just 11 Teal, nine Shovelers, 64 Common Scoters, 18 Fulmars, 250 Gannets, a Mediterranean Gull, seven Little Gulls and 11 Sandwich Terns of note. The Glaucous Gull was still in the area and a third-winter Yellow-legged Gull was feeding at the Patch.
It remains very quiet on the land with just eight Firecrests scattered across the area of note.

Al least six Porpoise were feeding offshore.
