19th December

A fresher, bright and breezy day saw a notable influx of Barred Warbler watchers but there were few new discoveries to report. Five Pale-bellied Brent Geese were at Ferrybridge for the first time for a few days, 3 Eider, 2 Common Scoter and the Black Guillemot were in Portland Harbour, 2 Purple Sandpipers, the Barred Warbler and singles of Black Redstart and Blackcap remained at the Bill and 3 Red-throated Divers passed through off the Bill.
