Two juvenile Greater Black backed Gulls were present on the 6th. One has been in the company of Cormorants all month, with the aim of stealing a trout. On the 8th 40 Golden Plover was a good count and a single Red Kite was a fly through. During the snow flurries of the 11th a male Blackcap was in the garden and 26 Cormorants were on the reservoir.
The February Webs count on the 12th produced 143 Mallard, 27 Tufted Duck and 11 Great crested Grebes. Peregrines were seen on the 13th and 23rd, the latter date having two birds chasing each other as storm Doris struck.
During the unsettled and stormy weather of the 27th strange Mamma clouds were seen in the afternoon.
