Tuesday 31st January

 A fairly wild and windy day with quite cold, icy showers at times between bouts of sunshine.

I managed an hour or so at the two RSPB hides at Gruinart in the afternoon. The very long-staying female type Marsh Harrier was seen on a couple of occasions. An adult and later a young, White-tailed Eagle sauntered through and put up many of the Teal, Wigeon, Shoveler and Pintail present, but a total of 29 Whooper Swans on the floods were not phased, there were also plenty of Snipe, a pair of Gadwall and a tally of 3 Little Egrets.
