Bold = Remarkable observation (scarce or rare species or large number)
* = Additional info (on mouseover species)
Comments: Nothing rare but a nice mix of species on a beautiful morning. The Meadow Pipit count is probably an underestimate as a wander around the wider area later in the monring revealed literally hundreds of them scattered around the coastal heath and pasture. Some of the alba wagtails and finches were coming in off the sea from the direction of Eire.
