19th February

A reminder that the next In Focus field event at the Obs takes place between 10am and 4pm this Saturday, 21st February 2015.

Although the forecast rain held off for slightly longer than expected it had rolled in by mid-morning and spoilt any coverage for the rest of the day. The only reports were of 6 Red-throated Divers and 6 Common Scoter through off the Bill, the Blackcap still at the Obs and a Pale-bellied Brent Goose again at Ferrybridge.
