5th March

Once again the wind stayed from the north west which made for a chilly feel around the peninsula. Very little moving on the sea but a single Black Redstart and Peregrine were seen around the power station compound.

In the trapping area a Firecrest was the only bird of note this morning. 

On the RSPB Reserve the minute of Grebes was still on New Diggings with 2 Slavonian Grebe and 1 Black-necked Grebe still persisting. One of the Long-eared Owls was seen roosting by the dipping ponds and there was also a drake Smew on Dengemarsh.
