13th - 16th March

After a teasing couple of days with a few spring migrants, the weather unfortunately returned to the norm of westerly winds and varying amounts of rain, the only new occurrence was the discovery of a dead Long-eared Owl in Holland Gardens whilst a single Bean Goose, Canada Goose and up to 4 Pink-footed Geese remain. On a much more exciting note we've seen a continued increase in display activity from the many breeding Lapwings and Oystercatchers, Black-headed Gull numbers are rising daily at their breeding sites as ever growing numbers of Fulmars are prospecting along the outer dyke and Black Guillemots ashore on the bolder beach at Gretchen for the first time this year.
