Friday 15th February

It's been a relatively quiet couple of days after the recent gull excitement. The reason for this is largely due to the improved weather which, whilst being nice for us, tends to mean fewer gulls to watch and those that do turn up tend to do so at a later time as well.

There are still a few waders about with 5 REDSHANK, 5 DUNLIN and 1 OYSTERCATCHER (the latter found by Liam Langley and Alex Martin) of note in the last couple of days as well as plenty of Golden Plover. On the duck front it's the usual suspects in the usual numbers with 30+ PINTAIL  and up to 5 GOOSANDER being the most noteworthy.

Due to the nice weather, instead of gulling today I went for a run around Burgess Field to see what was about. I had my first Skylark of the year fly over, a single Meadow Pipit, 1 Snipe and 1 JACK SNIPE, a Sparrowhawk and a Kestrel to report for my troubles.
