9th March 2019

Slow going of late, with the main interest again coming from the long-stayers in the north of the bay – the Velvet Scoter, two Great Northern Divers and Long-tailed Duck all putting in regular appearances in the last few days. Otherwise, a Yellow-legged Gull was reported off the bay on 5th, up to 14 Yellowhammers and a few Grey Partridge are in the Short Hedge area, and (unfortunately) reports of Red-legged Partridges are becoming more regular across the area.
