Otter estuary and Crab Ledge

6 Snipe on view in the scrapes with 50+ Wigeon and 20+Teal still present. Water Rail heard with great views of a Male Reed Bunting along the reed beds. Great Spotted Woodpecker drumming on the dead oak on the floodplain with plenting of Rooks busy building nests in the large Poplars by White Bridge. Fulmars paired up and gliding along the cliff face with Rock Pipits appearing along the cliff edge. Ravens soaring over the stubble fields and Skylarks singing above the grassy buffer strips. A very pleasant stroll on a warm early spring afternoon.  

Fulmars in good numbers
