2nd March 2012

The south easterlies continued and brought another Goldcrest to the island also a small number of finches (4 Siskin, 4 Greenfinch, 1 Chaffinch and a Goldfinch) and 7 Pied Wagtails. The Merlin was still present, also 3 of the Blue Tits from yesterday, but new today was a Rook flying south and 4 Jackdaws travelling south west. The first Gannet of the year was found on the sea together with 18 Common Scoter and 9 Great Crested Grebes, but more of a surprise floating off the west side of the north end was an immature Mute Swan.
Ringed :- 1 Goldcrest, 1 Blue Tit, 1 Robin, 1 Blackbird
