25th February

A lovely sunny day again on the Point with the first-winter Glaucous Gull putting in an appearance but the Caspian Gull was not noted today. Very quiet on the sea except a few Red-throated Divers feeding offshore.

The Long Pits held a single Pochard, 3 Firecrest, a Cetti's Warbler and 2 Chiffchaff. Also of note the first Marsh Frogs of the year were seen. In the Moat 3 Song Thrush, 2 Reed Bunting, 4 Greenfinch and a single Skylark. There were also 2 Black Redstart feeding around the powerstation walls.

On the RSPB Reserve the Glossy Ibis was seen in the morning but is proving elusive and difficult to pin down. Elsewhere 2 Black-necked Grebe were on the New Diggings, and the Slavonian Grebe was again seen from the Dennis Hide. Only one Long-eared Owl was seen behind the dipping ponds and a couple of Great White Egret were seen on Dengemarsh and the access track respectively.
