10th March

A lovely fine, sunny day but migrants still weren't at all numerous. Three new Firecrests - plus a lingerer from yesterday - were the best of the bunch at the Bill, where 2 Redwings, singles of Water Rail, Black Redstart, Wheatear and Blackcap, together with a continuing trickle of incoming Meadow Pipits, made up the rest of the tally. Elsewhere there were 2 Chiffchaffs at King Barrow Quarry, the Hooded Crow at the Grove, a Wheatear at the Sailing Academy, a Black Redstart at Chesil Cove and 4 Black-necked Grebes in Portland Harbour.
