22nd Feb

There were signs of a bit of movement today. On the land two Wood Larks were of note along with a Golden Plover, a Firecrest, a Chiffchaff and a Dartford Warbler. There was very little moving offshore so a Red-necked Grebe sat on the sea with the Great Crested Grebes was a nice surprise.

Two Porpoises were seen.
