10th Feb

Plenty of birds offshore this morning with 315 Red-throated Divers, 320 Ganets and over 1000 auks passing east and also 19 Pintail of note. There were huge numbers of gulls at the Patch this afternoon but all that could be found among them were the two regular Iceland Gulls
A check of the Trapping Area and Long Pits produced a Chiffchaff and two Cetti's Warblers of interest.

One Porpoise was seen.

Elsewhere, the Ring-necked Duck continues its stay on Cooke's Pool and the two Long-eared Owls occasionally show themselves by the Dipping Pond on the RSPB reserve. The Slavonian Grebe remains on New Diggings.
