Wednesday 29th March 2017


Despite the weather relenting finally, to give us at least a hint that Spring is on its way, most interest was on the sea. The highlight was a Sandwich Tern that plodded north after leaving the river mouth. Apart from that, most sightings were of Red-throated Divers with 7 going back north, along with 12 Brent Geese and 2 Shoveler, whilst southbound 6 Dunlin, 5 Golden Plover, 1 each of Red-breasted Merganser, Bar-tailed Godwit, Curlew and Gannet. On site only 2 Chiffchaff and a Goldcrest were the highlights.

2 Birds ringed : 1 Chiffchaff and 1 Long-tailed Tit.
