20th February 2014

Weather :- WSW force 5/6 some rain
A good count of the Brent revealed 235 birds (2 were colour ringed), which equals the high number for the winter. A flock of 2,000 Knot was seen to fly straight out to sea towards the north west, obviously starting their return journey. The female Kestrel was still present and a Little Egret made an appearance and 15 Great Crested Grebes were on the sea. A Pied Wagtail flew south and a single Meadow Pipit was noted but there was no sign of the Rock Pipit.
