17th March

Two raptor species new for the year arrived right on cue during a very mixed day of sunshine and showers: a Sparrowhawk was on exactly the same date as the first record in 2011, and a Kestrel was one day earlier than the first record in that year. The only other new arrivals of note were a Rook and a small influx of 18 Linnets to the observatory's crop fields. The Greenland White-fronted Goose was back with the European White-fronts and a Pink-footed Goose was seen again with the Greylags.
