WeBS count this morning, as expected less birds than in February (2,206 down to 1,475), another sign that birds are on the move.  Despite the drop in numbers, still a big flock of chattering Golden Plover (estimate 750), although no Lapwing at all. 44 Black-tailed Godwit were incomers (even if not from far away) and a single female Pintail was nice.
