28th Feb

Another miserable day with heavy rain and gale force southerly winds giving more or less unbirdable conditions. All the meaningful observations came from the sea where the juvenile Iceland Gull made another appearance along with six Caspian Gulls, a Yellow-legged Gull and an Mediterranean Gull. Nine hundred Great Crested Grebes were also feeding offshore. Three Ringed Plover were seen around the puddles at the fishing boats.
