Tuesday 2nd February 2016

Noteworthy birds today included the pair of Stonechats again around the observatory building, two Barn Owls hunting over the grazing Marsh and a male Goldeneye returning to the Broadwater. The sea remained relatively quiet with four Red-throated Divers, six Great-crested Grebes, two Fulmars and a Kittiwake the best of a 30 minute seawatch.
