5th February

An early morning Marsh Harrier that appeared over the Bill during one of several misty, drizzly spells was a surprise, but otherwise a more-of-the-same list there included 2 Short-eared Owls, 2 Firecrests and singles of Black Redstart and Chiffchaff on the land and singles of Red-throated Diver and Brent Goose through on the sea.

...a truly awful record shot of a bird that wasn't actually too far away but was barely resolvable through the mist and drizzle.
