14th February

A calm morning did little for the seawatching except for allowing a count of Great Crested Grebes in the bay with a superb total of 2661 birds seen. A Slavonian Grebe was also seen with them but there was very little in the way of genuine movement. 
The regular first-winter Caspian and Glaucous Gulls continued to show well.
Two Woodcocks were flushed from the bushes at the north end of the Long Pits.

A few more clumps of Goose Barnacles were washed up but no more Columbus Crabs were found. This large clump was on the beach at Galloways where the bleached skeleton of a Porpoise was also found.
