Splash Point 26/3/16

Despite the promising southerly wind set all week for today that materialised into a wind that was slightly west of south, there wasn't a great deal moving. The highlight was the first Arctic Skua of the Spring, but other then this the passage was poor. Annoyingly I had to go to work so missed what appeared to be a Firecrest bonanza along the south coast. 

Totals between 05.40-06.40:

Arctic Skua - 1 dark phase
Mediterranean Gull - 1
Sandwich Tern - 2
Brent Geese - 52
Common Scoter - 52
Fulmar - 22 (distant birds only recorded)
Gannet - 2
Red-throated Diver - 1
Black-headed Gull - 27
Common Gull - 15
