4th and 5th February

With horrendous weather on 4th the entire day was spent indoors, but a return to calmer conditions the next day meant there were a few things to report. Presumably the same lingering 2 immature Glaucous Gulls spent most of the day around Gretchen but an adult male Merlin was a new individual and 2 Hen Harriers were seen. Despite the current cold snap throughout most of Europe and other parts of the UK, wildfowl numbers have thus far remained fairly static but thrushes though continue to increase slowly with 52 Redwing and 14 Fieldfare now present, while 3 Linnets have also arrived.
