12th - 14th March

There was nothing of note to report on the 12th and 13th, but the 14th saw the beginning of 2012's systematic migrant census of the island. The best of a sparse selection of new migrants were a Chaffinch and a group of 5 Rooks, although the latter were a new species for the year. Long-staying Iceland Gulls were at Gravity and Westness, and a third individual was roosting on Seal Skerry. A Pink-footed Goose was again with the Greylags, and 2 Pied Wagtails were seen.

At least 12 Shelducks was an increase on recent counts.
