The ground is a few degrees above freezing now but the gale force SE'ly takes the wind-chill a degree or two below zero! There has been a movement of thrushes, mainly Fieldfare, with 85 counted in fields around the south today. Still lots of Curlews present plus six Golden Plover, a Lapwing and five Dunlin. The two Linnets remain faithful to the seed in the garden. A Grey Heron is new in South Harbour.
Did I mention that we are now taking bookings for the 2010 season? Come up and see the new Observatory - its very impressive and is going to be lovely!
