25th Mar

Most of the days interest was in an overhead movement of finches with another very high count of 140 Siskins of particular note along with 55 Chaffinches, nine Bramblings, a Crossbill and 16 Goldfinches and a Rock Pipit and 75 Jackdaws. The rarest bird of the day was a female Bullfinch in the Trapping Area. It was very quiet offshore.

Three Porpoises were seen.
