First Redshank drops in

9th March - my first Redshank of the year was on the spit this afternoon.  I heard it calling as I arrived when it was walking on the top of the spit with Lapwing.  Later it started feeding around the spit edge.  Otherwise not much change, although I was unable to make the gull roost again.  The pair of Shelduck remained and Reed Buntings are becoming more obvious - 4 birds noted today, with 3 flying over and another male in a reed bed.
First of the year
