28th November

The strength of the blasting easterly was more than enough to put the mockers on what had looked quite promising overnight mothing conditions as well as seriously hinder daytime birding forays. New arrivals were limited to a lone Redwing at the Bill, singles of Merlin, Snipe and Ring Ouzel in the Watery Lane/Windmills area and singles of Red-throated Diver and Slavonian Grebe in Portland Harbour, whilst lingerers included a Black Redstart and a Blackcap at the Bill, a Firecrest at Wakeham and the Black Guillemot in Portland Harbour.

Five Diamond-back Moth and 4 Rusty-dot Pearl constituted the overnight immigrant moth tally at the Obs.
