6th March

A wodge of rain moving through the Channel was close enough at times to be visible from the Bill but, perhaps surprisingly, didn't prevent a few migrants from getting through, with a trickle of Meadow Pipits and alba wagtails arriving in off the sea for much of the day; 5 Carrion Crows also arrived, whilst a Bullfinch that dropped in at the Obs was a first for the year there (as was a singing Collared Dove but that likely arrived from further up island). Seven Red-throated Divers passed through off the Bill and 7 Purple Sandpipers and 3 Short-eared Owls were about on the land.
