Monday, 13 March 2017
Weather: SW-4, sunny , partly cloudly.
quiet cold day saw little in the way of migration. A couple of
Chiffchaffs were recorded in the coastal sallows and 100 Meadow Pipit
moved North during the morning. The mornings highlight was a fine
drake Pintail on the sea from the Lighthouse Car Park. Highlight of
the day however was our first Ring Ouzel of the spring found by
visiting birder (Dave Ball) . The bird was in a Horse paddock west of
Park Field house. The bird showed well before disappearing into a
hedge. Unfortunately it could not be relocated before dusk.
