24th Mar

Very quiet with just one Mediterranean Gull offshore and two Willow Warblers, 12 Wheatears and a Black Redstart on the land.

Two Porpoises were feeding offshore.

I ran the Audiomoth a couple of nights ago but had not been able to check the recordings until this morning. It was very quiet so it was a surprise to hear a short series of four calls from a 0250hrs on 23rd. A Water Rail was also recorded.
