29th Mar

Two Spoonbills flew over the northern end of the recording area and the first ten Sand Martins and eight Swallows of the year were seen but migration on the land was otherwise slow-going with just three Chiffchaffs, seven Wheatears and a couple of Siskin of note. The sea was fairly quiet but did produce 38 Eiders and 56 Sandwich Terns.

A Brown Hare was seen at the Point.
