Thursday 18th February 2016

Cold & wet morning so far. Single Curlew both north & south are probably spring migrants as this species characteristically start heading to the breeding grounds from mid-Feb onwards. Also noted southbound 3 Shelduck, 2 Oyk, Gannet  & Red-breasted Merganser plus northbound Red-throated Diver with a single Guillemot offshore. At least one Goldcrest still surviving, 2 Turnstone were on the beach and the local Magpies are starting nest building and repairing previously used structures.
