Fog bound

Thursday 25th March comments:
A very cold, bleak day as heavy rain in the morning gave way to thick fog in the afternoon, but things don't stop because of the weather - the team have work to do! It was also good for birding as a flurry of migrant birds descended onto the islands including an impressive Black Redstart.
Highlights: Snipe 3, Sanwich Tern 1 fishing but we couldn't see the roost due to the fog! Skylark 2, Meadow Pipit 42, Robin 2, Fieldfare 15, Redwing 6, Song Thrush 1, Blackbird 2, Black Redstart female - favouring Lighthouse, Wheatear 2, Chiffchaff 3, Goldcrest 2, Brambling male and Reed Bunting 2.
