5th Mar

A thoroughly miserable day with almost continuous heavy rain till dark. An early morning seawatch confirmed that there was very little movement offshore but the juvenile Glaucous Gull made a flypast and a single Mediterranean Gull was also seen. The only migrants on the land were three Chiffchaffs although conditions were very difficult to say the least.

Three Porpoises were seen.
