Tuesday 28th February

Signs of Spring continue with a good count of 92 Common Gull in the estuary and small numbers of Lesser Black-backed Gull heading north overhead. Counts from the estuary included 760 Dunlin, 69 Grey Plover, 64 Knot, 43 Bar-tailed Godwit, 12 Sanderling and a Greenshank with 22 Great-crested Grebe and a Red-throated Diver offshore. Elsewhere the first two Pheasant on the year were sparring on the Golf Course, a Buzzard was overhead and a Cirl Bunting remains in song around the Buffer Zone.

Wildlife News: A Red Admiral was on the wing behind the Visitor Centre.
