Sunday 5th April

The first Osprey of the year was the highlight, flying north over the spit at 7.50am. It had been first seen at Berry Head 40 minutes earlier and was tracked past Dawlish and up the Exe, catching a fish and remaining at Bowling Green until 10.45 before it continued northwards. Other migrants included seven Wheatear, six Swallow, six Chiffchaff and a Willow Warbler. Elsewhere nine Manx Shearwater, six Sandwich Tern and a Great Northern Diver were offshore and counts from the estuary included 38 Ringed Plover, 27 Bar-tailed Godwit, 21 Brent Geese, 17 Dunlin, nine Grey Plover, eight Sanderling and a Knot

Wildlife News: Sand Crocus is now in flower and a dead Sand Lizard found on Warren Point, the first of the year.
