Tuesday 31st January

What a contrast between yesterday and today weatherwise! Without yesterday's glorious sunshine, the overcast conditions and rather chilling wind meant that it wasn't that pleasant being out on the Meadow today. Accordingly I didn't stay until absolutely last light but the gull roost was rather small anyway. Plenty of waders today: 2 RUFF, 2 REDSHANK and 3 DUNLIN as well as the usual lapwings and golden plover. The SHELDUCK was still around, the RED KITE was seen again and there were still about a dozen PINTAIL all told. The only point of interest in the gull roost was the 2nd winter YELLOW-LEGGED GULL once more.
