6th Mar

Almost all the interest was offshore today in fresh to strong SSW winds and frequent heavy showers. Over seven hours of watching produced a mainly easterly movement of 2130 Brent Goose, 13 Teal, two Eiders, a Velvet Scoter, 381 Common Scoters, four Red-breasted Mergansers, 149 Red-throated Divers, 45 Fulmars, 537 Gannets, five Curlews, 108 Kittiwakes and two Mediterranean Gulls. One Great Skua flew west.
Very quiet on the land although a Wood Lark came in off the sea and just a Chiffchaff, a Firecrest and a few Reed Buntings were also of note.
