Strumble & Harbour 1st Feb.

Nothing offshore at Strumble in the conditions, the sea doing a very good impression of a washing machine. In the fields back from the head probably a couple of hundred Redwing & Starlings which wouldn't stay still & then I saw the reason, a large Accipter sitting on the hedge watching them very closely, I think Sparrowhawk rather than Goshawk but didn't get a chance to nail it.
At the harbour 2 Adult Med Gulls & a fair amount of Common Gulls in the roost. Two Great crested Grebe on sea, survival time though I think watching them less than 10 minutes !
