Sunday 27th March

Another day of blue skies with the highlights all outside the Recording Area, two Red Kite north along ridge behind Easton and an immature White-tailed Eagle that was tracked from Exmouth across the estuary and was lost from view in Cockwood Valley putting up 59 Cattle Egret in the process. This was G542, a 2nd year female released on the Isle of Wight last summer.  

On site 108 Curlew, 38 Dark-bellied and a Pale-bellied Brent Goose, 52 Dunlin, 15 Teal, seven Ringed Plover, six Red-breasted Merganser, six Redshank, four Knot, four Greenshank and two Sanderling.

Elsewhere the Velvet Scoter remained offshore with a single Red-throated Diver, light overhead movement included the first White Wagtail of the year, four Rook, two Siskin and a Chaffinch; and four Shoveler and single Grey Heron, Snipe and Water Rail were at the Main Pond with the first brood of Mallard ducklings.

Wildlife News: A bull Grey Seal was in the estuary and a Water Vole was seen at the Main Pond.
