25th - 26th March

The calm conditions have persisted over the last couple of days although few species seem to have taken advantage of the pleasant weather with little movement noted; a Stonechat was new on 25th along with a slight increase to 17 Redwings. A near summer plumaged Black-throated Diver which flew east past the seawatch hide was the highlight of the following day along with 13 Great-northern Divers, 9 Red-throated Divers and a good count of 364 Shags on the nearly flat calm seas. Other migrants were represented by an influx of 62 Black-headed Gulls (including several flocks seen coming in high from the south), two Rooks and a slight increase to 36 Fieldfares while small numbers of species such as Woodcock and Snow Bunting are still being seen.
