12th March 2014

Weather:- SSE force 3, thick fog soon after dawn, very cold breeze.
The fog rolled in blanketing the islands after dawn but failed bring any falls of birds, indeed it was quieter than usual for mid-March.The only birds new in on the ground were a Chaffinch, a Greenfinch and a Reed Bunting. Passing through overhead were about 80 Meadow Pipits, 7 Pied Wagtails, 2 Siskins, a Skylark and a Woodpigeon. The dark-bellied Brent and 19 local Shelduck were seen and 2 Rock Pipits were at the south end of Middle.
Ringed:- 1 Chaffinch                 [ 16-6 ]
