28th March

A return to more familiar and less unseasonably halcyon conditions still delivered a small number of new migrants. A Sand Martin was the most notable arrival: unusually early in the year, it was only the second ever March record of the species on North Ronaldsay. A few other small birds include 5 Goldcrests at Holland House, 22 Redwings, a Fieldfare, 2 Wheatears and a Robin. A couple of the usual Iceland Gulls were still around, as was the Woodpigeon, and 3 Sandwich Terns were seen.
