28th January

In mightily unpleasant conditions - a dreary, damp start giving way to a blasting and very cold northwesterly - a Great Skua lingering off the Bill for the best part of the morning was the only newcomer of note; 6 Purple Sandpipers and 2 Blackcaps were still at the Bill, the Hooded Crow was again at the Grove pig farm and the Black Guillemot remained off Portland Castle.
