3rd March

As usual at this time of year we're probably getting ahead of ourselves and hoping for more than is realistic. Nonetheless, despite looking promising for the likes of alba wagtails and Meadow Pipits trickling in, migrant-wise today didn't come up with anything of consequence beyond another Contintental Stonechat at the Bill. Movement at sea included 17 Common Scoter, 12 Red-throated Divers, a Great Northern Diver and a Manx Shearwater off the Bill, whilst one of the Iceland Gulls was again at Chesil Cove.
