25th February 2010

Although the weather (SSE 4-5) started similar to yesterday the wind had dropped compeletely by 3pm.

Another good day with good counts of 415 Shelduck on 'the reef', 480 Curlew, 2,000 Knot, 3,000 Oystercatchers along with smaller numbers of other wader species. A single Peregrine hunted the islands as usual.

Brents remained at 150 pale-bellied and two dark-bellied.

However, the highlights of the day were a single Raven which flew south and yet another harrier - this time the more likely, for the time of year, Hen Harrier. A ringtail flew over the North End and off to the north east.
