A cold wind day and snowing most of the time. Despite the cold several hardy soles took part in litter pick on the beach, and managed to see 5 Turnstone, a Sanderling and a Purple Sandpiper. A Hawfinch showed briefly a couple of times was a nice find considering that few birds are about. Also seen today were 2 Water Rails and a flock of about 150 Starlings

Cold easterly gale - oh the joys of "spring" at Landguard. Offshore 14 Gannets, 2 Pintail, 2 Red-throated Divers & a Fulmar went north. No indication of any migrants in the bushes & if there are any on the point then i will leave you to find them as i am not walking out there in this weather ! What is presumably the same Long-eared Owl that was here two days ago is still with us skulking away & who can blame it for doing so.
