15th February

Even on a lovely bright, mild day when there was ample reason to be out looking there was a real sense of it being the dreg end of winter, with very little about. Another 5 Red-throated Divers passed through off the Bill, the usual 5 Purple Sandpipers and single Blackcap were still about on the land there, the Black Redstart was still at Portland Castle and the Black Guillemot remained off the castle.
