29th Feb

The clear highlight of the day was two Waxwings which flew south over the Long Pits. Seawatching produced a Velvet Scoter, 193 Brent Geese and ten Mediterranean Gulls. Three Water Rails were heard calling in the trapping area and a Chiffchaff was feeding in the Lighthouse Garden.

A Porpoise was feeding offshore.
