6th-7th February

Both the weather and the sea continued to batter the Island on 6th but relented over-night to leave a glorious, if cool winters day on 7th. The juvenile Glaucous Gull was still at the north end on 6th, while a walk through the Kirbest crop fields found most of the Islands passerines there with 13 Skylarks, 55 Twite, 16 Linnets and 6 Reed Buntings present. The most notable arrival of the period was a Tundra Bean Goose near the Observatory on 7th and 3 different Hen Harriers were seen including an adult male.


Unfortunately the camera focused on the cows backside, but you can just about make out the Tundra Bean Goose!
