The cold dry Easterly wind flowing through with scattered cloud. This evening there were many larger gulls passing northeast low over the rooftops, as during the previous cold spell of Continental air it seems that they have decided to roost away from the exposed Channel coast.
A couple of sea watches recently, yesterday 9 Common gulls and 3 Black-headed gulls east off the Marina. A party of three ducks east off the Pier at noon were a bit distant – perhaps Shovelers, although not seen well.
In the fields today the Reed buntings and larks continue in numbers, spring-like activity diminished. Snipe frequent.
