Saturday 10th March

I don't always get an opportunity to visit the Meadow at the weekend but today I had the chance to nip down mid afternoon for a while. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, warm and balmy with hardly a breath of wind though despite it being the arrival date last year for the first sand martins there was still no sign of any summer visitors yet. The 6 REDSHANK and 5 DUNLIN (I may have missed one) and 2 OYSTERCATCHERS were still around and there were a total of 5 SHELDUCK about today which is a good total. Despite it being rather early the nucleus of a gull roost was starting to form and there were a couple of common gulls in amongst them.

The light was so good that I had to spend some time
taking photos. Here's one of the redshank
