31st March 2019

Weather: ENE force 3
Three male Wheatears landed this morning in what was otherwise a quiet day.

Birds of passage were 5 Pied Wagtails, 3 Goldfinches plus larger species that are regular at this time in spring, namely a Woodpigeon and a Canada Goose.
The sea fared somewhat better with 6 summer plumage Red-throated Divers, 11 Red-breasted Mergansers and 12 Great Crested Grebes. Two Little Egrets and a Grey Heron were on the shore.

One hundred and twenty eight Brent were located, more than yesterday but still well down on a few days ago; other wildfowl about are 3 Eiders and 3 Mallards.
Ringed: 1 Meadow Pipit, 1 Wren.       [ 46-9 ]
