 Weather E force 1/2 then SSW 3/4   mist around the estuary

A Jackdaw was heard over early morning and a Greenfinch landed briefly in the old obs garden.

A House Sparrow was nearby the telegraph house area, and later in the afternoon another was around the bungalows. Other finches present during the day were 2 Chaffinches, a Goldfinch, a Siskin, and 16 of the island Linnets. Six Pied Wagtails showed and 2 Dunnocks in the paddocks with one singing. A pair of Scoter sat out at the north end.

On the sea were 70 Scoter and 14 Great Crested Grebe, while the Daffodils bloomed in the old obs garden.

A good count was made of 212 Turnstone.

A Grey Heron flew into the pond just after sunset.
