21st February

Nothing new around the peninsula however the regular first-winter Glaucous Gull and two first-winter Caspian Gull were still on the puddles by the fishing boats. Good numbers of Kittiwakes and Guillemots were passing westward and a handful of Brent Geese moving up channel too.

On the RSPB Reserve the at least one Long-eared Owl was still by the dipping pond and the Slavonian Grebe was still on Burrowes Pit.
