19th February

A cold start followed by chilly wintery showers later in the day. The first-winter Glaucous Gull was still present loafing around the lighthouse, meanwhile 2 Little Gull passed the Point. Still good numbers of Great Crested Grebe and auks on the sea.

On the RSPB Reserve 2 Great White Egret were noted at Boulderwall Farm as well as a redhead Smew. The Slavonian Grebe was still present on Burrowes and the Long-eared Owl was behind the dipping pond between the visitor centre and Firth Hide.
