24th Mar

A lovely day but very quiet on the migration front. The best on the land were a Merlin, 57 Jackdaws, nine Chiffchaffs, a Firecrest, seven Song Thrushes, three Black Redstarts and two Bramblings. The best on the sea were 370 Brent Geese, two Red-breasted Mergansers and five Mediterranean Gulls. A Great White Egret was also feeding at the Long Pits.

At least 26 Porpoises were feeding offshore.
