29th March – Spring still on a go slow
During the morning of Thursday 29th, Tony Taylor ringed a single Chiffchaff (the first of the year to be ringed) and two Goldcrests. He also managed to read the colour-ring combination of one of the island's returning Wheatears – a male ringed as a one-year-old bird in 2017 at exactly the same spot as Tony resighted it. Other sightings during yet another decidedly un-springlike day included six Teal, a flock of nine Cormorants flying north, seven Swallows (seen at Jenny's Cove by Darrin Dowding), the same female Merlin as reported previously, two Redwings in Millcombe and a pair of Stonechats.
