27th March

The first Jack Snipe of the year made its belated appearance in the afternoon, and a male Lapland Bunting in smart breeding plumage brightened up an otherwise uneventful day. The Rook was still present and a Common Redpoll, 20 Meadow Pipits and 9 Pied Wagtails were logged.

A newly rotivated field near the observatory is already proving popular with the Twites; calm weather has allowed several of them to be caught and ringed.
