Thursday 19th March

Spring arrived in the form of four Wheatear along the beach, at least seven Chiffchaff on site and the second earliest ever Blackcap subsinging in Dead Dolphin Wood. Other migrants included a dozen Meadow Pipit overhead and a Goldcrest on Warren Point. Elsewhere the female Eider was offshore and the flooded area of Greenland Lake held 12 Snipe, six Teal and two Shoveler.

Wildlife News: The weather was however not spring like and insects were not on the wing but two Grey Seal were in the estuary.
