26th February 2011

A quiet bird day but with some more signs of spring. Frogs were very active in the old obs pond (left & below) and daffodills were out by the
rememberance plaque to founder member John Gittins in the 'heli' trap garden (bottom).

A young female Grey Seal was hauled out at the north end for a time while few visitors were on the island.
Bird of the day was a male Goosander seen flying low over the sea, slightly less of a surpirse was an adult Kittiwake on the edge of the tide. A Peregrine harassed the waders on the east hoyle which again today included a good number of Knot.
