Harbour Update – posted 07/03/15

It seems we didn’t see the same glorious weather that the rest of the country experienced today, but none the less signs of spring continue to creep through.¬†Starting off up on Ballard where 2 Black Redstart were found, including a lovely adult male. At South Beach there was a Firecrest and Middle Beach 3 summer plumaged Black-necked Grebe, 2 winter plumage Slavonian Grebe and 2 Common Scoter. Brands Bay saw 1 Spoonbill, 1 Spotted Redshank and 1 Yellow-legged Gull. At Swineham there were 2 Marsh Harrier, 1 singing Chiffchaff, 5+ Cetti’s Warbler, good numbers of Gadwall, Shoveler and Teal on the main GP and a handful of Med Gulls overhead. Yesterday a Blackcap was ringed in the north of the harbour, but was considered an over-winterer rather than a migrant, with another Blackcap at Creekmoor Ponds.
