4th Mar

A wet and windy day with not a great deal to be seen. Two Firecrests in the trapping area were about the best of the birds in the bushes. Over 4.5 hrs of seawatching produced 275 Brent Geese, a Mediterranean Gull, 13 Sandwich Terns and a Great Skua of note. Two Merlins also came in.

A Porpoise and a Grey Seal were seen offshore.
