1st March

The first day of a new month brought with it a drop in the wind and clearing of the sky (albeit interspersed with some heavy showers). The very slow arrival of Chiffchaffs continued with three birds around the Church Ope/Bumpers Lane area. The sunshine also saw the beginnings of Meadow Pipits moving with single figures seen coming in off the sea. A Bonxie and two Red-throated Divers were the highlights of the morning's seawatch and seven Purple Sandpipers remained at the Bill.
