20th February

More miserable weather on the Point meant birding was uncomfortable to say the least with a strong westerly breeze and drizzle all day. On the bird front the first-winter Glaucous Gull was present again along with the first-winter Caspian Gull around the puddles/lighthouse area. Good numbers of auk still in the area with plenty of Guillemot heading west. Of note there are still huge numbers of gulls still feeding at the patch.

On the RSPB Reserve 2 Long-eared Owl still roosting by the dipping ponds, 3 Smew along the access track, Slavonian Grebe still on Burrowes Pit and 2 Great White Egrets at Boulderwall Farm.
