27th Mar

There was a small arrival of migrants on the land this morning but seawatching was very slow. Of note on the land were the first Willow Warbler of the spring, 20 Chiffchaffs, four Firecrests, two Black Redstarts, three Wheatears, a Grey Wagtail, a Siskin and a minor scarcity these days in the form of a Bullfinch. The best the sea could offer were just two Red-breasted Mergansers and three Sandwich Terns

Six Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
