7th February

Motivation seems to be dwindling just now as thoughts are turning to spring rather than what winter might still have up its sleeve - and it's hard to drum up much enthusiasm for tramping the fields in the face of the relentless, chilly wind that's become such a feature in the last few days. Today's only reports came from the Bill where 27 Red-throated Divers and 2 Brent Geese passed through on the sea (nearly all heading west so not much sign of them thinking of spring) and 9 Purple Sandpipers and 2 Blackcap were still about on the land.
