Saturday 26th March

The first 16 Manx Shearwater of the year flew south after the rain late afternoon with three Sandwich Tern, 45+ Great and eight Lesser Black-backed Gull sheltering in the estuary. Earlier in the day few waders were around the high tide with just 23 Dunlin, 13 Grey Plover, six Sanderling, three Ringed Plover, two Greenshank and single Bar-tailed Godwit and Knot.  Elsewhere a Wheatear was in Greenland Lake, a Sand Martin flew through and a Cirl Bunting was singing resolutely from an area of recently cleared scrub on the Golf Course.

Sandwich Tern - Lee Collins. The ringing details are awaited on this first March recovery from the Warren
