17th March

A glimmer of hope that the windy days are behind us with a very small influx of Wheatears and a fraction more excitement on the Sea. Although the day count of Wheatears reached just six birds, this included the first two females of the year. Other passerine movements included a Swallow past the Bill, 30 Meadow Pipits between the East Cliffs and the Top Fields and single figures of alba Wagtails. On the sea totals amassed to: one Bonxie, two Red-throated Divers, four Common Scoter and a single Mediterranean Gull.
