2nd February

Black-necked Grebes reached a new peak for this winter of 23 in Portland Harbour but other than that it was business as usual, with 9 Red-throated Divers through off the Bill, 2 Short-eared Owls and the Grey Heron still at the Bill, single Firecrests still at the Obs and Church Ope Cove, the Blackcap still at Wakeham and a good count of 180 Dunlin at Ferrybridge.
