Friday 30th March

The first Willow Warbler of the year was feeding around Dead Dolphin Wood this morning, with at least five Chiffchaff on site and two Redwing in the Entrance Bushes but no other migrants were noted in the cold and wet conditions.

In the estuary the Spoonbill paid another visit to Finger Point over the morning high tide and a beast of an immature Iceland Gull was on Bull Hill as the waters receded. Counts included 43 Curlew, 21 Sanderling, 18 Shelduck and just 11 Dark-bellied Brent Geese, three Bar-tailed Godwit and two Dunlin. Elsewhere an immature drake Eider was offshore with four Sandwich Tern, two Great Northern and a Red-throated Diver.

Wildlife News: A young Grey Seal was offshore, the third recent sighting.
