12th Mar

Another hard day with strong cold winds and occasional wintry showers. The juvenile Glaucous Gull was still at the fishing boats, a first-winter Yellow-legged Gull was seen at the Patch and a Firecrest was seen in the trapping area but very little else was noted.

The Audiomoth recorder was deployed again last night with a Water Rail, 14 Blackbirds and 514 Redwings recorded.

A single Porpoise was feeding offshore.
