4th March 2014

Weather:- NW force 5/6 later 3, some rain early
A disturbance by boats out of Mostyn dock produced about 7,000 Common Scoters  flying out in the bay half way to the north hoyle wind farm, the latest in a sequence of sightings of large gatherings of these birds. The Brent Geese were counted at 182 including the dark-bellied bird. Common Scoters (5 males and 2 females) could clearly be heard calling down the east side of the island. A Mute Swan flew east passed the island. A Little Egret was noted. A male Chaffinch was on the feeders for a while, but no other small migrants were present.
