14th to 15th March

The first two Sand Martins of the year passed through on a calmer day on the 14th. Other noteworthy sightings of the day included a Red-throated Diver, a Merlin, three Snipe, two Wheatears, five Redwings, three Chiffchaffs and the Firecrest. During the night, the second Long-eared Owl of the year was seen at Cristin, and the second Manx Shearwater of the year was heard flying around. The 15th was a windier day and consequently much quieter: a single Chiffchaff was a new arrival on Pencristin, and 13 Purple Sandpipers were seen on the rocks near Solfach.

 The male and female Wheatears remained on the Narrows on both days
