A light dusting of snow overnight soon melted but it's still cold. Bird wise it's a bit "same old same old" at the moment. A Ringed Plover near the point is probably one of the locals returning to check his territory is still here as, despite the cold, days are lengthening which normally stimulates some thoughts of spring. The regular Sanderling is on the beach with just 2 Turnstones. Turnstone numbers this winter have been poor for reasons not known although it could just be tied in with numbers declining nationally across parts of the country. 6 Med Gulls were loitering along side a fisherman - do they learn which individual fishermen feed them as opposed to those that don't ?
