31st January 2009

A very inhospitable day with such a biting wind that even the birds found other places to be. The only Brents located were 92 sheltering north west of the whaleback, and waders were almost completely absent and may have found more comfortable places to reside (see photo of Redshanks and others by the sea wall of the marine lake).
A couple of Song Thrushes and a Robin seemed to be the only passerines on the island, and a male Red-breasted Merganser on the sea was likewise unopposed for the observers attention.
