7th-8th March

A blast of cold, easterly winds has come a few weeks early to bring any real signs of spring migration, with most of the notable sightings being of lingering birds. After not being seen for a couple of weeks, the wintering Black-tailed Godwit flock returned to Bridesness on 8th and had increased by 3 to now number 16 birds. 11 Goldeneyes were among the Gulls feeding in the swell offshore there, where up to 40 Black-headed Gulls have also now arrived. The Stock Dove continues to be seen daily, and at least 140 Skylarks were at Kirbest.
