27th March 2017

Weather: SE-2, Sunny and clear - cool

A good fall of migrants today included 6 Wheatear, 2 Goldcrest and at least 25 Chiffchaff. Most were migrants however some are already holding territory. Our first Willow Warbler of the year arrived late afternoon as did the first House Martin. Three Sand Martin also shot through mid afternoon. 

Other oddity migrants included 2 Woodpigeon passing over high and a single Rook, the latter quite a scarcity. A single Jackdaw, Raven, Carrion Crow and 5 Magpie completd the Corvid line up.

Offshore a single Sandwich Tern passed through over the high tide.
