A visit to to the Spit Hide with a scope this morning proved interesting with 10 Bar Tailed Godwits, 1 Greenshank and, most unusually, 10 Ruff....I have never seen this number before  from the hide! They were all actively preening and gave the impression of having just arrived. Also present were Knot, ,Dunlin, Ringed and Grey Plover plus 800 Brent Geese. To cap it all a 'cronking' Raven flew over the harbour.
Once back home, from the comfort of my living room a Slavonian Grebe close in shore!
Alas no photography...light poor and miserably cold and generally unpleasant.

Last day of February today ...roll on March.
