First Blackcap arrives

22nd March 2022 – hazy sun/murky E2
A check of the sea in murky conditions (0700-0800) revealed just 10 Common Scoter and 3 Red-throated Diver.
Grounded Migrants
Just 4 Goldcrest, 2 Chiffchaff and singles of Wheatear and Blackcap were logged, though the latter was the first of the year.
Diurnal Migration
A Grey Wagtail was amongst a trickle of Meadow Pipit.
The Hooded Crow remains and a Merlin was the best of the rest.
Common Quaker and Dotted Border were the only attractions.
