Despite the strong south west winds the first Goldcrests of Spring appeared and one was caught and ringed.
Later on the tide 4 Little Gulls were the first seen this year. A passage of Robins also with 5 ringed bringing the March total to 12 so far.

Many Pied Wagtail and Meadow Pipits passed through and a Stonechat appeared mid morning near the pond.
