22nd to 23rd February

On the morning of the 22nd, two Fulmars, two Gannets, a Shelduck, four Common Scoters, two Black-headed Gulls and two Common Gulls flew past the Narrows. Inland, the female Sparrowhawk was seen hunting prey, four Snipe were flushed from the wetlands, and three Song Thrushes were seen in the gardens. The 23rd was a quieter day: the Firecrest was seen in the Plantation with six Goldcrests, and five Song Thrushes and three Snipe were seen in the lowlands.

 This Cormorant has visited one of the inland ponds for two days in a row, which is quite an unusual occurrence
 Dabbling Shelducks
 The head of this unfortunate male Teal was discovered at the North end of the island on the 23rd...
...the most likely culprit was one of the resident Peregrines
