Saturday 5th March

Early March and no sign of any early migrants in the cold north wind, in fact there was little sign of Spring except a pair of Long-tailed Tit pair busy nest building by the First Pond and a drop off of small gull numbers compared with 10 days ago  - 250 Black headed Gull down to just 25 today. Also in the estuary an increase to 261 Curlew, 108 Brent Geese, 28 Shelduck, two Greenshank and the two Slavonian Grebe. Elsewhere 21 Great-crested Grebe and four Common Scoter were offshore, a Shoveler was on the Main Pond and two Siskin, a Coal Tit and a Treecreeper were in the Entrance Bushes.
