23rd February

A much brighter day on the peninsula but very quiet birdwise. Of note the first-winter Glaucous Gull was still present in the usual area around the fishing boats. The sea was very quiet with no particular highlights to report however 250+ Great Crested Grebe are still lingering offshore. Around the Obs itself a single Blackbird was trapped and a Reed Bunting was seen in the Moat.

On the RSPB Reserve the 2 Long-eared Owls were roosting by the dipping ponds. 2 Great White Egrets, 1 Smew and a Slavonian Grebe made up the best the Reserve had to offer.
