Tuesday 21st March

A mix of joy and frustration today, the joy of watching four Alpine Swift over the Eastdon ridge for several hours and the frustration of one getting as close as 400m from the Recording Area boundary! Off Cockwood Steps, whilst not watching swifts, the first Spotted Redshank of the year, presumably the Starcross bird getting itchy feet, was with 22 Redshank and three Greenshank, six Red-breasted Merganser were in the channel, 12 Sandwich Tern were offshore, two Mediterranean Gull and two Buzzard were overhead and the first Sand Martin of the year was over Shutterton Creek.
