Friday 18th March 2016

With cold north winds blocking the arrival of migrants, it was another quiet day at the Obs, with 3 Goldeneye on the Broadwater the highlight, and a Common Scoter and 2 Red-breasted Mergansers on the sea. 2 Rock Pipits and 2 Siskins were also of note. The moth trap was, alas, empty!
