Sunday 27th March

A smart summer-plumaged Scandinavian Rock Pipit on the beach mid morning was the highlight, with two Great Northern Diver on the sea off John's Watch and the seawall the only other new arrivals on an otherwise quiet day. Elsewhere the Firecrest was in Dead Dolphin Wood, 11 Sandwich Tern were around the estuary and wader counts included 420 Oystercatcher, 60 Turnstone, 13 Grey Plover, seven Sanderling and just two Dunlin.

Wildlife News: The Sand Crocus attempted to flower in between showers but none of the sunny spells where long enough to coax full emergence.
