3rd February

A bright and less windy morning allowed a decent check of the land which produced a Jack Snipe and five Snipe in the flooded area to the east of the Long Pits and a couple of Firecrests in the bushes. There was very little passage at sea but there were at least three Mediterranean Gulls at the Patch and the first-winter Caspian and Glaucous Gulls on the beach at the fishing boats whilst 840 Great Crested Grebes were feeding offshore.
