21st January 2014

Weather:-A cold morning with considerable wind chill later as the south easterly freshened to force 6

Sunrise (KMc)
young  Common seal  (CJ)

A beautiful sky after dawn found a young Common Seal on the sand at Little Eye, which after eyeing up the observers scuttled off across the sand towards the distant tide. Best bird of the day was a Woodpigeon which flew in at the north end, stayed a while and then flew off over the sea to the north west, only the bird would know why. Common Scoters did not perform today out by the wind farm, just a single was noted with 5 Great Crested Grebes. Land birds were the usual few wintering on the island including 2 Blackbirds and a Song Thrush with 3 Linnets noted early on. The Brent spent the low tide around the north of the island and included the 2 colour ringed birds.
