A pair of Greylag's paying a visit is a sign of spring as they wander around looking for new sites to colonise. However the cold north-easterly doesn't feel spring like at all. Offshore northbound 82 Cormorant, 45 Red-throated Diver, 6 Kitts, 4 Brent, 4 Gannet, 2 Great-crested Grebe & Guillemot plus southbound 18 Red-throats. Only migrant on site was a Fieldfare although a new Chaffinch is probably a spring migrant.

Ringing: 1 chaffinch
