20th Mar

A handful of birds on the land today with a female Bullfinch probably the highlight (note there were no records in 2020), along with a Buzzard, a Jack Snipe, five Common Snipe, three Firecrests, 21 Goldfinches and two Siskins.

It continues to be slow going offshore as well with just three Teal, 165 Red-throated Divers, a Mediterranean Gull and 11 Sandwich Terns although the Iceland Gull was seen at the Patch again this morning.

Only 12 Redwing calls were counted on the Audiomoth last night but tonight it is already very busy for calling birds so hopefully there will be some decent recordings to go through tomorrow.

At least 14 Porpoise were feeding offshore.
