Saturday 25th February

Offshore a Long-tailed Duck, 65 Common Scoter and two Red-throated Diver flew south with auks still going through but in lesser numbers than Thursday. Elsewhere 105 Common Gull were in the estuary, a noticeable increase, there was also a large gathering of Herring Gull feeding offshore in shallows but no white wingers amongst them.

Wildlife News: Early Meadow-grass is now out in flower. It can be found in areas of short well walked turf around the Buffer Zone, Back Path and Warren Point. The pale, washed out green colour is a useful aid to identification.
