(1-4) Lugo. There were four birds at Lago marshes/beach, Xove, Lugo on 1.2 (Javier Gomez Aoiz, Anton David Pérez), two seen later (Toño Salazar), link to a photo by T.Salazar. At least four to five birds had been present all January in the area. At least one remained on 4.2 (Delfín González).See two thumbnails here.On 7.2 there were 2 1w at Morás harbour, Xove (Ricardo Hevia). They might be the same Lago birds or others.On 8.2 there were 3 1w together there (Toño Salazar) but two 1w later (Daniel López Velasco, Marco García, Rafa García) and only one on 11.2 (Ricardo Hevia) but two on 15.2 (Xurxo Piñeiro, María José Valencia).And one on 28.2 (R.Hevia).
(5-7) Lugo. There were three at San Cibrao (San Ciprián), Cervo, Lugo on 1.2 (Toño Salazar).Link to a photo of a pair of them and the other here (T.Salazar).

For avoiding duplication purposes, maybe it would be better considering that the other two may have moved to Morás pier, Xove on 11.2, when two 1w were recorded simultaneously to the S.Cibrao sole 1w that day (Ricardo Hevia).One 1w remained on 28.2 (R.Hevia, T.Salazar).
