13th February 2022

Weather:  SE force 5, drizzle

An early start in the dark to catch the early tide. Fourteen Purple Sandpipers were roosting at the north end in the strong south east wind.

The first Mallards of the spring (3) were loafing on the main island pond and a Song Thrush was singing in the paddocks, while another more predicable sign of the coming season was the blooming of daffodills around the island.

Four Blackbirds were seen, also 4 Rock Pipits and a Peregrine. A Fox again showed its presence by signs that at some stage it has been making itself at home.
