Thursday 29th March

A cold and wet morning with persistent rain didn't produce much in the way of birding highlights, a single Wheatear and seven Sandwich Tern were the only new migrants. Elsewhere an Eider was offshore, three Shoveler were on the Main Pond and wader numbers, including two Greenshank, were mostly in single figures

Wildlife News: Despite the sunny spells from midday there was not enough sunshine to coax out any Sand Crocus. The exceptional cold and wet start to Spring has also delayed butterflies and bees, last year several species of each were on the wing by now.
