18th March

A day that won't be remembered in a hurry. In a brisk westerly only Wheatear just about managed to reach a double figure total at the Bill, with the other routine migrants either absent or reduced to low single figure totals. Five Sandwich Terns through off the Bill were the first of the season there, with 7 Red-throated Divers the only other sightings of note on the sea. The only other report was of the Hume's Warbler still at Thumb Lane.
