15th March

The Ides of March brought, most notably, the year's first Dunnock - a heartening sign in the Northern Isles that spring passerine migration is on its way. A couple of Meadow Pipits passed overhead with a small number of Skylarks, and at least 8 Pied Wagtails were scattered around the island. The day's Iceland Gull tally reached 4 different individuals, 1 of which was a new arrival, while a Jack Snipe was the best of the other non-passerines.
