22nd March

A scattering of new migrants seen during a calm and bright morning census included the first Chiffchaff, Carrion Crow and littoralis Rock Pipit of the year. A Woodpigeon, 2 Song Thrushes, a Goldcrest, a Rook and another Chaffinch were also new, and a Hen Harrier was the first for a while. Another new Iceland Gull arrived, while the long-staying dark second-winter bird made another of its occasional appearances at Westness.
