Birding with a Brolly

7th March - popped down for a quick visit when I thought the rain had passed through - unfortunately it was only a lull!

Still no migrant waders - I would have thought both Redshank and Oystercatcher would have been through by now.  A Little Egret on the base of the spit was only my second this year and Shelduck numbers had once more risen to 3, with a pair plus a further male.  I had to leave before the gull roost had started to build, so that will have to be left to someone else - with 2 Med Gulls, a Glaucous and probably 2 different Iceland Gulls over the last 3 nights, there should be something to see here at the moment!

Of interest, details of the adult Lesser Black-backed Gull with orange darvic KB3T noted on Saturday can be found here.  Interesting to see that it was recorded at this site in 2010 as well.
