20th February

Not much birding activity today. The morning's migrant activity at the Bill consisted of just the first Redwing of the season at the Obs and a lone Blackbird arriving in off the sea; other odds and ends there included 2 Short-eared Owls and a Firecrest on the land and singles of Red-throated Diver, Great Northern Diver and Common Scoter through on the sea.

The Short-eared Owls were depleted in number but those that were about showed nicely at times © Pete Saunders:
