23rd - 25th February

There was little new to mention from a period that included some very rough weather at times, but most of the long-staying notable birds stayed put through the gales and downpours. The gathering of White-fronted Geese remained settled near the post office, their single Greenlandic delegate still greatly outnumbered by its European counterparts. The lone Knot was seen again on the 24th, and both the Scaup and the Glaucous Gull were still present on the 25th. An adult Iceland Gull was around Stromness point on the 24th, and an immature bird was near the lighthouse the following day.
