Sunday 8th April

An Osprey over the estuary early evening was the pick of the day's sightings. Also in the estuary 94 Turnstone, six Sandwich Tern, two Whimbrel, two Bar and a Black-tailed Godwit, a Greenshank and the Slavonian Grebe. Elsewhere migrants were limited to five Willow Warbler in the bushes and 12 Siskin overhead, whilst offshore there were five Eider, 22 Great-crested Grebe, five Great Northern and two Red-throated Diver.

Wildlife News: With some lengthy sunny spells the Sand Crocus finally emerged in numbers today. The Grey Seal was in the estuary and two Harbour Porpoise were offshore.
