Tuesday 8th to Monday 14th February 2011

Please bear with us folks with the new recent reports/blog type system & re-vamped web page as its an ongoing process at the moment. The 8th brought us a flock of 8 Waxwings flying south, a single Skylark south plus one on the reserve, 7 Meadow Pipits and the second Pheasant of the year. On the 11th 4 Shorelarks on the beach, 2 Redwings, a Skylark north then south and a single Curlew south. On the 18th the Pheasant seen again, 2 Fieldfares and single Shore & Skylarks. The 13th saw a pair of Eiders north then south. Apart from this its more of the same with a few waders on the beach (with the odd Ringed Plover starting to perform their display flight already !), the occasional Red-throated Diver offshore and plenty of seagulls. For those of you with an interest in the history of the site and an old map showing the location of the recently enlarged pond on the Butts then can I divert you to Sarah's blog on the Landguard Partnership website for some interesting information?
