6th March

Today saw some typically variable early spring weather ranging from clear blue skies (albeit short-lived) to hammering showers and almost everything in between. Perhaps we were a little optimistic to think that the strong Southerlies overnight may have brought something of interest into the channel as our sea watch failed to produce anything of note except a pair of Black-headed Gulls. A pair of Chiffchaffs (one almost certainly fresh in) were around the Obs and East Cliffs, a pair of loitering Song Thrushes were still frequenting the Crown Estate Field and a pair of Black Redstarts were evading our attempts at photography around the Huts.
