March migration

Local patch: in the late afternoon a flock of 9 MUTE SWANS flew past on migration, heading east. Almost the same did a flock of about 84 Wigeons, at 5.75 pm, that was present on the sea since 5.28 pm.
On the sea also the usual Great Crested Grebes on evening roost and a few Black-necked Grebes. Large flocks of gulls (both Yellow-legged and Black-headed) are gathering too on the sea.

At dusk one of the first Bats sp. appeared over the patch.
