27th Mar

A quiet day in cold, breezy conditions. The unlikely highlight was another sighting of a Grey Partridge this time at the Long Pits along with two Wheatears at the fishing boats and a Buzzard and a Marsh Harrier overhead. Virtually birdless offshore with just an Eider and 11 Sandwich Terns of interest.

Four Porpoise were feeding offshore. 

The clear highlight for a handful of local observers was an immature White-tailed Eagle which flew over NE over the ARC Pit and Lade and out of site towards Hythe but was not seen from the Observatory recording area.
