21st Mar

More miserable weather and very few migrants to be seen. A 4hr seawatch during the morning included 230 Brent Geese, 145 Common Scoters, a Red-breasted Merganser, 16 Sandwich Terns and 133 Gannets.  A first-winter Caspian Gull and a first-winter Yellow-legged Gull were in the roost at the Point. A Wheatear was seen at the fishing boats.

The highlight of the day though was a pod of four White-headed Dolphins along with three Porpoise.
