27th February

A quiet and bitterly cold day today and the number of birds seen reflected that. The first-winter Glaucous Gull was once again present at the fishing boats and little was noted on the sea.

A Woodcock was flushed from the bushes at the Long Pit and a Cetti's Warbler was also present.

On the RSPB Reserve the 2 Slavonian Grebe were still on the New Diggings but no sign of the Black-necked Grebes today. A single drake Smew was seen on Burrowes Pit too.
