March 12th-15th

Generally a quiet few days round the Mere with the highlight being the 2w Iceland Gull putting in a few appearances from Saturday onwards, showing well and coming to Hovis over the weekend and Monday. Some fine pics of the Iceland taken by Rich ‘Dicky Ticker’ Willison on Monday afternoon. Other birds around Mere included 4 Shelduck, 3 Oycs, 3+ LBB Gull, and a small increase in Goldeneye and Wigeon nos. On the 14th 12+Yellowhammer, 10 Reed Bunt and 7 Tree sparrow by the top end of 1st field. 15th Iceland again off jetties till 15:45 (LI,MR) and a stop off at Mappleton produced the 2w Glauc on the beach 1/4 mile south of the car park late afternoon.
