Time to update the blog 14th -24th Feb

 Not had much time to go birding due to the work load, but i have got out some weekends, although the weather hasnt been great. 

14th-24th February

Geese as usual have been top of the agenda with 7 Tundra Beans, 1 Pinkfoot, Barnacles, Brents and White-fronts still being about.  Top picture showing a Barnacle X Canada Goose. 

Gulls were a 1st Winter Northern Herring Gull (L. argentatus) (in the first set of pic) a few Adult Yellow legged gulls (in second set) and Caspian gulls too still

Waders were now moving with 3 Ruff and a cracking Spotted Redshank.

Other bits were Barn Owl, Tawny Owl and Little Owl. Woodcock over the Garden. 

Leucistic teal.

Tragedy after the Beast from the East though were 18 Woodcock, 3 Guillimot, A Razorbill, Gannet, Blackbird, and a few gulls all dead and washed up Hollesley to Simpson salting whis is only a matter of a couple of hundred meters.

24th Feb

Their a small pool of flood water just outside my back gate into a field. A Green Sandpiper has taken to feeding from it. Not a garden tick but still great to see.  A Barn Owl feeding was also a nice surprise. It certainly started to feel like spring here today, the Yellow Hammer and Goldcrest in full song.
