17th Mar

Another fairly slow day with limited movement offshore involving 105 Brent Geese, a Red-breasted Merganser, a Mediterranean Gull and 19 Sandwich Terns of interest. There were lots of gulls again but all that could be found amongst them was single first-winter Caspian Gull and Yellow-legged Gulls and a leucistic Herring Gull which also turned out to be yesterdays Glaucous Gull.

It was very quiet on the land with just a Fieldfare and 65 Chaffinches of interest.

Despite the lack of migrants on the land there was some "NocMig" with the Audiomoth recording 273 Redwings and 31 Song Thrushes and also a flock of Bar-tailed Godwits of note.

Six Porpoises were feeding offshore
