Friday 29th March

A Great Skua was a welcome surprise heading SW during an otherwise uneventful early morning seawatch with three Great Northern Diver and three Great Crested Grebe on the sea and a 3cy Mediterranean Gull offshore.

Counts from the estuary included 223 Oystercatcher, 52 Curlew, 36 Turnstone, 36 Dark and seven Pale-bellied Brent Geese, 13 Grey and two Ringed Plover, 11 Sandwich Tern, nine Eider (six ♀ & three immature ♂), five Redshank, pairs of Red-breasted Merganser and Teal, two Sanderling and a Dunlin.

Elsewhere a Willow Warbler was in the Entrance Bushes, with nine Chiffchaff, four Wheatear and a Blackcap on site with three Jackdaw and three Rook overhead.

Year list addition:

123. Great Skua
