25th Mar

A nice sunny morning which proved fairly disappointing on the bird front with just a Wheatear and four Black Redstarts of any real note on the land.

The sea was also fairly quiet with 2.25hrs of watching produced just a Shoveler, a Pintail, two Mediterranean Gulls and 29 Sandwich Terns of note.
