Saturday 1st March

The spring conditions saw an increase in activity on site with a good count of 37 Dunnock especially obvious in the sunshine. Also around the bushes three Great-spotted Woodpecker, three Goldcrest and the Siberian Chiffchaff.  Offshore there was little change with the three Velvet Scoter, two Long-tailed Duck, Red-necked and Slavonian Grebe still present along with a single Eider, nine Red-throated and five Great Northern Diver. Elsewhere counts from the estuary 380 Brent Geese, 170 Black and 39 Bar-tailed Godwit, 126 Curlew, 117 Redshank, 90 Grey Plover, 67 Knot, 24 Teal and seven Ringed Plover.
