31st March

Better coverage today, with more than half the island scoured for migrants on another decent day. As a result the Robin total was up to 53 and Dunnock's to 24 and its clear from ringing that there's a fairly constant turnover of birds. The day's year list additions were at least 1 Collared Dove and Greenfinch while yesterday's highlight-the Grey Wagtail was seen again in a couple of places. 15 Woodpigeons (including a flock of 10) was just short of the islands record count. The Tundra Bean Goose remains and there was also a Sparrowhawk, 2 Mistle Thrushes, 11 Chiffchaffs, a Rook and the Common Redpoll seen.
