Plym Estuary & Saltram

My first Chiffchaff of the year, here, (singing), Treecreeper, Stonechat (male), Mediterranean Gull (Polish-ringed PHAU which was also reported from Plymstock recently), 6 Wigeon, 22 Mandarin Ducks & Red-crested Pochard (female). 

A planning application has now been submitted for a solar farm on Chelson Meadow, a wildlife-rich part of this site. Although some concessions have been secured, there are still serious concerns over the impact on wildlife. Please put in a planning objection before 22nd March. Details here:-
