5th March

More of the same on a second successive very still and heavily overcast day. New arrivals at the Bill consisted of 30 Wood Pigeons arriving in off the sea and 2 Redwings and singles of Golden Plover and Snipe on the ground; 2 Red-throated and a single Great Northern Diver passed by on the sea. The Hooded Crow hybrid was also still about at the Bill, whilst in Portland Harbour 5 Black-necked Grebes and 4 Eider lingered on.
