29th March

A misty, drizzly, breezy day was hardly ideal for looking for birds, and little of note was found on the census rounds. A littoralis Rock Pipit was new and a couple of Wheatears were at the north of the island, but most other birds, including a Pink-footed Goose, 7 White-fronted Geese, a Hen Harrier, an Iceland Gull and a Woodpigeon, had been on the island for a few days or longer.

Merlins have been seen most days recently, including this ringed bird that has been present for several days.
