Sunday 26th March 2017

Still hard graft due to the north easterly airflow although the odd migrant is battling through as evidenced by a Ring Ouzel alongside View Point Road early on and this Chiffchaff with a mass of sap & pollen above its bill which it will have acquired during the winter from vegetation around the Mediterranean area. Single Skylark & Mipit went south and a couple of Goldcrest are loitering on site. Offshore, apart from a mass of seagulls, just a couple of Red-throated Divers & Gannets noted. The Iceland Gull put in another appearance as the Stena Britannica went out.

2 birds ringed: 1 Wren, 1 Chiffchaff.
