Friday 11th March

An hour's seawatch early morning show nothing more than 20 Gannet passing offshore in wet and windy conditions. Later on a site visit with the Environment Agency allowed a quick check of the dropping tide with 119 Dark-bellied Brent Goose, seven Red-breasted Merganser, four Great-crested Grebe and two Greenshank amongst the usual waders in the estuary. 

Elsewhere single Chiffchaff, Sparrowhawk, Green and Great-spotted Woodpecker were on site.

Wildlife News: Sand Crocus leaves are now easily visible with plants found in new areas on the Golf Course.

Ringing News: Details of a metal ringed Dunlin seen on 23 Feb 2022 have been received. It was ringed as an adult at Uosikaupunki, Varsinais-Suomi, SW Finland on 2 Aug 2021. The Warren is 1899 km WSW from the site of ringing.

This is only the second Finnish recovery from the Warren, the other was a Black-headed Gull.
