21st March 2015

Weather: N force2/3
A beautiful morning but little sign of too many migrants, nevertheless another first sighting for the year with 15 Little Gulls flying off the north end, and indeed sea watching probably had the edge today with records of 15 Red-throated Divers, 8,000 distant Scoter off north Wirral, and 2 Drake Eiders. Two dark-bellied Brent were amongst the flock of over 100 birds this morning.

Still present (probably the same as yesterday) were Stonechat, a single Merlin which showed well on Wheatear Hill (see above and video at, Peregrine and 2 Rock Pipits. Just about the highest tide of spring saw the waves lapping well up onto the rocks and slipways about the islands.
