23rd January

The Bill received plenty of coverage and it was the sea that returned the numbers, with 27 Red-throated Divers, 9 Common Scoter, 6 Brent Geese and 6 Wigeon through during the morning; on the land a Reed Bunting was a first for the year - although in all probability previously overlooked, whilst 2 Redwings, a Blackcap and a Chiffchaff lingered on. Elsewhere, another Chiffchaff was at Easton and the Black Guillemot was still off Portland Castle.
