Highlights of a 2 hour seawatch were single Black-throated and Red-throated Divers and a Sandwich Tern. Foot-slogging resulted in a nice but routine selection of birds for mid-March. Totals as follows; 65 Golden Plover, 4 Redwing, Black Redstart, 7 Wheatears, 2 Water Pipits, 2 Blackcaps, 16 Chiffchaffs, 2 Goldcrests and a Firecrest.
