Saturday 15th March

A male Wheatear was on Warren Point but with the exception of a good count of 42 Lesser Black-backed Gull new migrants were again otherwise absent. Offshore there was also little change with two each of Velvet Scoter, Eider and Long-tailed Duck still present alongside the Red-necked and Slavonian Grebe,10 Red-throated and a Great Northern Diver. Elsewhere counts from the estuary included 375+ Dunlin, 300 Brent Geese, 151 Curlew, 118 Redshank, 25 Knot, 19 Sanderling, 14 Bar-tailed Godwit, 10 Grey Plover and four Teal whilst overhead there were eight Rook and a Raven.
