5th - 26th March

A Greenland white-fronted and a pink footed goose remained with the greylag flock throughout, with single canada goose and barnacle goose on 7th. 21 long-tailed duck were counted on 5th and up to 3 glaucous gulls were feeding on the dead white-sided dolphin in Nouster Bay. A blue fulmar was occasionally seen along the west side from 15th, a count of 98 fieldfare on 16th and new migrants on 17th included singles of greenfinch, woodpigeon and jackdaw. A goldcrest appeared on 18th and a sand martin on 20th is the earliest ever record.
