4th March

A pleasant sunny day on the Point as long as you could keep out of the biting cold wind. The sunshine brought about a Small Tortoiseshell in the trapping area. Birdwise the trapping area also held the pick of the birds with 4 Firecrest, 9 Goldcrest abd 4 Snipe. Whilst 2 Siskin went north.

On the Long Pit a single Great Crested Grebe appeared signalling a start to the breeding season for them. A Kingfisher also put in a performance too. Another Firecrest was also noted on West Beach.

On the RSPB Reserve only a single Long-eared Owl was the only bird of note reported.
