I haven't seen any more Spring migrants since a couple of Sand Martins on the 6th March and since that time, the weather has returned to feeling very much like winter still. However, today a beautiful near full breeding plumaged Black-tailed Godwit on the estuary certainly brightened up an otherwise mostly gloomy day! Also, the long staying Cattle Egret has been joined by a second bird this evening with a slightly brighter bill colour. The birds are feeding with 11 Little Egret and also present in the field were two White Wagtails in a flock of 40+ Pied Wagtails.
