8th Mar

Another quiet day. The best of the birds on the land were four Firecrests and three Siskins. There was very little movement offshore but two Eiders and two Mediterranean Gulls passed through and another individual was feeding at the Patch.

Two Porpoises were feeding offshore and two Brown Hares were seen on the land.

Elsewhere, on the RSPB Reserve, the drake Smew continues to be seen on New Excavations and a Black-necked Grebe can be seen from Christmas Dell. The two Whooper Swans are still with the Mute Swans between Cockles Bridge and Lydd and the four Cattle Egret can be seen in the small horse paddock on the north side of the Lydd to Dungeness Road. The occasional Swallow and House Martin have also been on the Reserve.
