7th Feb

Limited coverage again on a freezing day with frequent snow flurries and strengthening northerly winds. There was a small indication of a cold weather arrival with 35 Lapwings, a Woodcock, two Redwings and a Fieldfare being seen. A check of the Patch produced the regular Iceland Gull and two Caspian Gulls.
