7th March 2015

Weather: S-3, mild and sunny.

The mild weather made for a pleasant day at the Lighthouse today with a number of Bumble Bees and Butterflies being noted.

A few notable species were recorded including 4 Snipe, 5 Pied Wagtail and 25 Meadow Pipits. Most notable however was the arrival of more Stonechats following yesterdays single bird. Ten birds were recorded (8m, 2f) including 8 birds together along the fence line bordering the paddocks.

A belated report of our first Sand Martin was recorded over the Lighthouse pond.
