29th Mar

With a light onshore breeze this morning there was a bit of easterly movement with 934 Brent Geese, an Arctic Skua and 77 Sandwich Terns of note. In the afternoon, a new first-winter Glaucous Gull was found  at the Patch.
It is still pretty quiet on the land with just six Firecrests dotted around the Point and two Bramblings and six Siskins of note. A Ring-necked Parakeet also flew over the area.
