Sunday 9th March

Another sunny cloudless day, this time with a stiff southeasterly breeze, but again a distinct lack of migrants. The Black Brant was again in the Bight on the rising tide, with 130+ Curlew, two Wigeon and two Greenshank in Shutterton Creek but wader numbers were generally much reduced. The winter residents remained at sea with three Velvet Scoter off the seawall and the two Long-tailed Duck, Red-necked and Slavonian Grebe off John's Watch. Elsewhere the two Siberian Chiffchaff were by the Entrance Bushes and the Red-legged Partridge was feeding around the shore of the Bight.

Wildlife News: The Common Seal was on Bull Hill and a Grey Seal was offshore.
