Thursday 22nd February

No sign of winter coming to an end today with a prevailing cold easterly wind, although an increase in Ringed Plover numbers may indicate some early wader movement and Great-crested Grebe numbers continue to decline. Counts from the estuary included 690 Dunlin, 95 Grey and 22 Ringed Plover, 55 Knot, 15 Turnstone and 12 Sanderling. Elsewhere 17 Great-crested Grebe and two Great Northern Diver were offshore, the year's first Green Woodpecker was on the Golf Course and two Raven and a Buzzard was overhead.
