21st Feb

The Iceland Gull was at the Patch along with two Caspian Gulls and two Yellow-legged Gulls. There was a hint of migration on the land with a singing Chiffchaff on the Point rather than the Trapping Area and two Fieldfares and 12 Redwings also seen. The regular Grey Wagtail was still in the power station and three Ravens flew over.

Of note from elsewhere was a very early Wheatear at Galloways Road.
