Monday 4th April

No sign of the Mandarin today with the migrant highlight instead being the second Short-eared Owl of the week over Warren Point mid-afternoon before heading high south and it or another over the Golf Course in the evening. Other migrants were limited to eight Chiffchaff and four Willow Warbler, the latter arriving during the day as there were none present early morning. Elsewhere 49 Turnstone, four Sandwich Tern, two Whimbrel and the Slavonian Grebe. were in the estuary with 21 Common Scoter and a Manx Shearwater offshore.

Wildlife News: Two new moth species for the Recording Area have been found recently, both micros - Schreckensteinia festaliella along the Dune Ridge and Psychoides verhuella in the Entrance Bushes.
