26th Mar

There was a small increase in the numbers of early migrants on the land with a Marsh Harrier, a Buzzard, seven Firecrests, 37 Redwings, ten Black Redstarts, six Stonechats, 35 Chaffinches, nine Bramblings and three Siskins of note.
Offshore passage was very light with just four Shovelers, nine Red-breasted Mergansers, a Mediterranean Gull and 68 Sandwich Terns of any interest. 

Two Bottle-nose Dolphins were feeding offshore this morning along with four Porpoises.

Six Peacocks and a Small Tortoiseshell were also on the wing in the sunny conditions.
