Ongoing Excavation Works.

20th January

Another very cold night with lots of ice around this morning. A search for snipe produced 14 Commons but no Jacks today. Three Firecrests were seen in the bushes and two Redpolls flew over.
Very quiet offshore in the flat calm conditions but the first-winter Glaucous Gull and the regular Caspian Gull were both seen.

A Common Seal was also seen.
