Wednesday 10th March

Hebrew Character - the only moth captured last night; a common species at this time of year although only noted in single figures these days, whereas, double-figures were the norm last century.

 Hard work today with strong winds and rain pretty much throughout; visibility was poor so even the sea didn't yield too much although 5 Brent Geese, a Gannet, 2 Mediterranean Gulls and 2 Red-throated Divers were counted.   An adult Yellow-legged Gull was briefly on the reserve, presumably the same Firecrest was heard calling again in the compound and 6 Ringed Plover, 3 Sanderling and a Turnstone were on the beach.
