Treecreeper provides a surprise

6th February 2009 - bright and frosty N2/3
Remaining quiet over the sea with just 6 Common Scoter, 4 Razorbill and a Red-throated Diver logged.
Grounded Migrants
A slight increase in cold weather movement produced 28 Fieldfare and 11 Redwing.
Diurnal Migration
A party of 6 Whooper Swan flew south and 36 Fieldfare flew north providing further evidence of cold weather displacement.
Although almost annual as a passage migrant the record of a Treecreeper was unprecedented at this time of the year. At least 3 Little Egret continue to endure the freeze.
