2nd March

A very quiet day birdwise on the peninsula with a bitterly cold wind and rough sea producing very little. Only birds of note were 4 Raven in off the sea which then headed towards Lade. Again no sign of the Glaucous Gull today.

On the RSPB Reserve 1 Long-eared Owl was noted roosting by the dipping pond. 2 Great White Egret were seen at  Dengemarsh and 2 Smew were on Burrowes Pit.
