Monday 19th March

Around 20cms of snow was on site first thing but soon started to melt, other evidence of yesterday's weather was included a Woodcock, 37 Golden Plover, including a flock of 25 west, 11 Redwing and two Fieldfare; though a record count of seven Cirl Bunting may also have been linked to the cold.

 Fieldfare - Simon Thurgood

Golden Plover - Simon Thurgood

Elsewhere a/the? Cetti's Warbler, four Chiffchaff and three Shoveler were around the Main Pond, the immature male Eider was on Finger Point and counts from the estuary included 546 Oystercatcher, 220 Dark-bellied Brent Geese, c200 Dunlin, 141 Curlew, 63 Grey Plover, 51 Knot, 37 Bar-tailed Godwit, seven Sanderling and four Wigeon.
