30-31st January

The theme for the past week has been... wind.  Lots of it but it has been responsible for a rather productive period in terms of gulls.  Little time was spent in the field due to the weather and indoor work taking priority but brief excursions on the 30th produced 9 Long-tailed Ducks, 2 Red-breasted Merganser, 26 Bar-tailed Godwits and the lingering 6 Eurasian White-fronted Geese.

The 31st brought with it little change in the bird scene with the lingering juvenile Glaucous Gull, 6 White-fronted Geese and 2 Mute Swans being the only noteworthy species.
