A brief visit produced a count of 203 pale-bellied Brent and a single dark-bellied, a slight increase on recent days, the flock is known to be fluid with some individuals both arriving and departing during the winter. A Stock Dove was bird of the day, and was nearly an ex-bird as it was pursued around the island by a Peregrine but managed to evade capture by diving into the Pittosporum bush by the obs garden. Thirty five bar-tailed Godwits flew north east. The first frog spawn of the year was noticed in the main pond.
