A calm day today, with minimal cloud cover allowing for pleasant conditions. A small movement was noted out to sea, made up of a Red-throated Diver, six Common Scoters and eight Kittiwakes. Two Teals were present on Pwll Cain, and a small selection of raptors were also seen a Sparrowhawk, a Buzzard and a Merlin. Wader totals culminated to a Knot, a Purple Sandpiper, 12 Curlews, nine Redshanks and 10 Turnstones. On the land little was noted aside from the first signs of migration. The Great Spotted Woodpecker continued it’s stay on the island, a Skylark, 126 Meadow Pipits, two Stonechats, a Wheatear, two Chiffchaffs, five Goldcrests and three Chaffinches were all new arrivals. All in all a quiet day, but showing signs of the beginning of Spring.
