27th and 28th March

A really rough couple of days with heavy, driving rain dominating proceedings and a strong, cold easterly wind blasting it across the island; there was a little window first thing on the 27th when it wasn’t too bad and birds included a Merlin, an increase to 115 Golden Plover, 5 Black-tailed Godwits on Gretchen, a Lesser Black-backed Gull, 2 Woodpigeons and a handful of Thrushes, Robins and Pipits.

                Very little coverage on the 28th but the handful of birds seen included 2 Woodcock, 3 Robin, 2 Mistle Thrushes, a Song Thrush and some very soggy looking Redwings and Fieldfares staggering around the Obs.  

Despite the weather, the Tysties are starting to get back in their groove!
