Weather: NW-2, overcast and mild.

Another mild spring like day today with many birds in full song today around the Lighthouse. The " resident" 3CY Med Gull was in the field opposite the cafe today whilst Kerr's flash was largely devoid of birds.

Five Stonechat were in Sandy Lane whilst the ever increasing Linnet flock, now numbering 40+ were busy feeding in the horse paddocks. Other finches today included 12 Golfinch, 11 Greenfinch and a flyover Siskin headed west. Another calling flyover was a Yellowhammer picked up as it flew north by the eatsern kissing gate. Less than annual at the Lighthouse this was probably the most surprising find of the day. Less surprising was the small but increasing number of Goldcrest with at least six recorded between Sandy Lane and Lingham Lane.
