1st March

Although hardly worthy of note for this date there was a tiny bit more about today than of late, with 3 Redwings and a Lapwing new on the ground at the Bill where a Pied Wagtail arrived in off the sea; at the Obs the first mist-netting session of the spring also revealed the presence of newcomers in the form of 2 Great Tits and a Robin. Offshore, the Common Scoter remained in residence and 4 Red-throated Divers passed by.
