Nothing else of interest other than the mega rare sighting of a police car driving on the top road, not something you ever see up there, must have been lost!
Well thats February out of the way as we enter into March, the month that puts a smile on birders faces.
Weather wise February has been a cruel month for Fly Flatts with Gales, Fog and Sunshine, the 3 worst birding elements for this location knocking me down to 36 visits as several days I had to drop down to the lowlands to avoid the fog and winds.
Bird wise the best of the bunch were :-
Teal 1m 2f
Short Eared Owl 4
Lapwing large flocks on the east bank
Barnacle Geese 2 unringed
Plus spring returns :-
Meadow Pipit 1
Canada goose c 300
The highlight of the month was the afternoon watch on the 16th when 1026 Pink Footed Geese came over >NW all within 30 minutes.
See you in March although birding is off in the morning as apparently I,ve volunteered for the morning school run risking life and limb amongst all the Kamikaze driving mothers. Come late afternoon I,ll be back in action.
