30th January

After the near 80mph winds overnight dropped to a more bird-able 50mph during the day, a few hours were spent checking the leeward Eastern side in the afternoon. The big surprise of the day was a Stock Dove near the Mill. Usually appearing singularly in early spring or late autumn, this is the first 'winter' record of the species on the island. There was little else of note seen, with Gull and Wildfowl numbers remaining much the same but there were now 2 Pochards present.
