Thursday 9th March

A few subtle signs of spring despite the weather with a group of 16 Black-tailed Godwit perhaps new arrivals, along with two sinensis Cormorant and overhead two Rook and a Lesser Black-backed Gull.

In the estuary 458 Dark-bellied Brent Geese arrived  after being flushed from Starcross GC, with other counts including 452 Dunlin and 38 Grey Plover, but hunting Peregrine and Sparrowhawk kept the flocks wary. Offshore in choppy conditions, 10 Great Crested Grebe and three Red-breasted Merganser, with four Shoveler, two Goldcrest and a Water Rail around the Main Pond.
