Thursday 28th March 2013

A Black-necked Grebe was offshore but otherwise there were just two Great-crested Grebe and two Common Scoter on the sea. A trickle of migrants included 25+ Meadow Pipit, 12 Goldfinch and a Chaffinch overhead with only seven Chiffchaff and three Wheatear grounded. Elsewhere 134 Brent Geese, 46 Bar-tailed Godwit, nine Teal, four Sandwich Tern and two Wigeon were in the estuary and the first Greylag Goose of the year was briefly on the Main Pond before flying north, the first record for the pond.

Wildlife News - The first Lizard sp of the year was tempted out by the weak sunshine, but failed to warm up quickly enough and ended up as food for the resident Kestrel. Still no sign of any Sand Crocus or butterflies yet.
