Wednesday 4th February

A Red-necked Grebe off the seawall was the first of the year with three Red-throated Diver, 44 Great-crested and a Black-necked Grebe also present. The lack of any Slavonian Grebe denied a five grebe day, this species used to winter in nationally important numbers but is now a scarce visitor. Elsewhere at least one Gadwall was on the Main Pond, both Green and Great-spotted Woodpecker were in the Entrance Bushes and 23 Black-tailed Godwit and a Greenshank were in the estuary. 

Wildlife News: The last known site for Pennyroyal Mentha pulegium in the recording area has been lost, replaced by a graveled private parking area. This species has the highest level of legal protection available but this hasn't prevented its deliberate destruction and probable loss from the Warren.
