Friday 24th March

The highlight was a first winter Caspian Gull roosting with other gulls on Finger Point at high tide, the first of the year after a record six last year.

Counts from the estuary continue to diminish as birds migrate back to breeding areas, with 280 Oystercatcher, 65 Dark-bellied Brent Geese, 41 Turnstone, 33 Curlew, 31 Redshank, 25 Dunlin, 16 Grey Plover, two Knot and a Bar-tailed Godwit over the high tide.

Moving in the same direction, but arriving from the south, 11 Sandwich Tern and six Wheatear.
