26th Mar

Another quiet day for land migrants with 22 Chiffchaff, 13 Wheatear and two Black Redstarts being the only spring migrants noted. Two Snipe and two Woodcock were also noted in the recording area.

The sea was again quiet with 58 Brent Geese, 110 Sandwich Tern, 40 Oystercatchers and five Bar-tailed Godwit recorded throughout the day.

Ten Porpoise were also seen on the sea.

The highlight of the day for one lucky observer was again the Large Tortoiseshell being seen within the same area of the trapping area.
