12th-14th February

A female Velvet Scoter in Nouster Bay on 14th was an unexpected bonus, and only the third record for the Island in the last decade (also the first in winter). With the sun out Skylarks were heard singing for the first time, while the Kestrel re-appeared near Holland. The 9 Black-tailed Godwits remained throughout as did a Pink-footed Goose, and a Jack Snipe was among the birds 'dazzled' for ringing overnight on 13th.
