Monday 20th March 2017

Wet & windy start then just windy for the rest of the morning. On the move southbound 36 Siskin, & 3 Mipits. In the bushes half a dozen Chiffchaff and Goldcrest with a Wheatear on the reserve. Offshore movements southbound 7 Turnstone, 4 Grey Plover, 3 Common Gull, 2 Gannet, 2 Brent, 2 Shelduck, 2 Dunlin & Common Scoter with northbound 6 Brent, Gannet & Fulmar plus 5 Gannet following a ship in. 3 Red-legged Partridge are still with us but are very skittish presumably as the are used to beaters and shooters trying to blast them off the planet from wherever they have come from.

3 birds ringed: 2 Chiffchaff, 1 Robin.
