A very cold, but beautiful sunny day here at the obs. It’s been quiet around the reserve, but highlights include a very loud singing Stock Dove for most of the day. On the sea, there were 2000 Scoter, 14 Eider, 2 Red-throated Diver and 2 Red-breasted Merganser. A stoat was seen hunting in the long grass in front of one of the hides this morning.
