9th December

With the obvious exception of the Barred Warbler that continued to attract a steady stream of visitors at the Obs today's offerings were very much standard winter fare: 4 Purple Sandpipers and a Blackcap at the Bill where 9 Red-throated Divers and a Black-throated Diver also passed through on the sea, a Chiffchaff at Southwell, 6 Pale-bellied Brent Geese at Ferrybridge and 3 Eiders and 2 Great Northern Divers in Portland Harbour.
