A marginally better day bird-wise saw a few new birds on the island. The first White Wagtail of the year arrived rather belatedly, and was feeding on Solfach with a Wheatear in the morning. The first Mistle Thrush of the year was seen at Nant in the afternoon, along with a Fieldfare, two Song Thrushes, nine Chiffchaffs and 13 Goldcrests. A Red-throated Diver and 11 Common Scoters were the highlights of sea passage.

 A single Wheatear showed very well on Solfach, occasionally filling the frame! (lower)
 White Wagtails usually arrive in mid-March, however, this is the first one of the year for us
 Goldcrests continue to feed in small numbers in the Plantation
