8th February

A single Tundra Bean Goose joined the Greylag Geese near the School and nearby were 50 European White-fronted Geese. A thrash around Hooking Loch yielded no Bitterns but found the first 2 Jack Snipe of the year. 124 Snipe were also logged along with 4 Meadow Pipits (year tick) and a Water Rail. Other waders noted were 77 Sanderlings, 39 Ringed Plovers and 18 Dunlins on the Links while 3 Woodcocks were around the south of the island. Both of the immature Glaucous Gulls remain and there was an adult Iceland Gull in Nouster Bay briefly.
