10th March 2010

An amazing 40,000 Knot were seen heading out of the estuary and off to the north, possibly vacating their wintering areas and moving towards their breeding grounds.
The wind was mostly in the north east but the only obvious passage overhead were 2 Siskins and 2 Goldfinches, and although the Linnets were counted at 8 birds they were probably potential breeders rather than migrants.
Later 10 Wigeon dropped in on the west side.
Three Common frogs were seen and frogspawn was found in the old obs pond for the first time this year.
