Ongoing Excavation Works.

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.
