Monday 28th March

A female Marsh Harrier low west over the Bight before heading off inland was the highlight with the earliest ever Little Ringed Plover, also over the Bight, a close second. Despite the weather it was quiet offshore with a half an hour watch early morning producing a Little Gull amongst 50+ distant Kittiwake but only four Gannet and no Fulmar. In the estuary two Slavonian Grebe were in Shutterton Creek, a Pale-bellied Brent was with the remaining 47 Dark-bellied Brent, just five Sanderling, two Grey Plover and a Dunlin joined the 350 Oystercatcher over high tide and at least 11 Sandwich Tern were present. Elsewhere a Kestrel and a single Swallow flew in off the sea, three Chiffchaff were around the Main Pond and a Great Northern Diver was off John's Watch.
