24th February

Despite perfect conditions for some legwork there looked to be few rewards on offer today: 14 Black-headed Gulls, 3 Common Scoter, 2 Mediterranean Gulls and a Red-throated Diver through off the Bill, 4 Rooks, 2 Collared Doves and a Chiffchaff on the land there, further single Chiffchaffs at both Church Ope Cove and Killick's Hill, one of the Black Redstarts also still at Church Ope Cove and a Merlin over Chesil Cove.
