1st February 2024

A relatively bright day, with a westerly wind and temperatures reaching nine degrees C. The Thornwick area attracted two Mute Swans, 68 Teal, 29 Tufted Ducks and 16 Coot. Immediately north-west of the camp, the two Shore Larks and 65 Snow Buntings were still in residence.

Another Mute Swan was on the sea off Hartendale (presumably the same individual had flown past the Fog Station earlier), while seven Red-legged Partridges and a Grey Wagtail were at Beacon Hill.

Sixteen Lapwings flew west over Cliff Lane, Bempton.
