24th February

A beautiful sunny day made for excellent viewing conditions. The main highlight on the Point was the first-winter Caspian Gull which reappeared today. Otherwise a quiet day.

The RSPB Reserve held some nice birds with the Glossy Ibis being seen again on Dengemarsh. Staying on Dengemarsh 6 White-fronted Geese made an appearance. A Little Stint was reported to fly over Burrowes Pit. Black-necked Grebe and Slavonian Grebe were seen in the main Reserve with 2 Long-eared Owl still roosting behind the dipping pond. The usual Great White Egrets were spread across the RSPB land.
