14th February

An even grimmer day than yesterday with rain and wind and throughout. The stalwarts that ventured out came up with a few odds and ends including the long-staying Grey Heron at the Bill, 6 Black-necked Grebes and a Great Northern Diver in Portland Harbour and 290 Dunlin (the highest count of the winter) and 77 Brent Geese at Ferrybridge.
