19th March

Still very wintry and very little sign of any migrants in the area except for two Woodcocks in the trapping area and four Firecrests scattered across the Point.   
A first-winter Caspian Gull flew east past the seawatch hide while the regular Glaucous Gull and a Little Gull were seen at the Patch and 32 Sandwich Terns flew east during the morning.

Three Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore and a Weasel was seen in the trapping area.

Elsewhere, the White-spotted Bluethroats continue to entertain at Dengemarsh Gully and with suggestions that there might be as many as four birds present today.
