28th March

The wind and rain that we'd been forecast duly showed up, with a good deal of accompanying fog making matters even worse. Passerine passage almost completely fizzled out, with 3 Firecrests and singles of Redwing, Chiffchaff and Blackcap - nearly all long-stayers - all there was on offer at the Bill. The sea wasn't as productive as might have been hoped, with 58 Brent Geese, 12 Common Scoter, 7 Manx Shearwaters and 6 Red-throated Divers all that could be mustered off the Bill.
