4th February

Dreary skies didn't enthuse today and coverage was pretty limited for a weekend day. There were no surprises on the land where a few of the established winterers did continue to entertain; offshore, another 17 Red-throated Divers passed through off the Bill and the 2 Slavonian Grebes made another of their seemingly quite infrequent visits to Portland Harbour. After dark, a Snipe calling overhead at the Obs was slightly unexpected.
