7th March

With the vicious easterly freshening all the time and gusting up around gale force by the afternoon birding opportunities - at least on the land - were again rather limited. A couple of single Chiffchaffs and an inbound Meadow Pipit made up the migrant tally at the Bill, 6 Purple Sandpipers were still there, 4 Common Scoter and a Red-throated Diver passed by on the sea and the Black Brant was back in at Ferrybridge.

Four Bottle-nosed Dolphins were lingering off the Bill.
