9th February

With the weather at least the measure of yesterday - if not better - there was plenty of incentive to stay outdoors, and a most unexpected reward came in the form of a Bearded Tit heard flying over at the Bill. Sadly there wasn't a sniff of any other new arrivals, with the Black Guillemot off Portland Castle, 3 Purple Sandpipers and a Blackcap at the Bill and 2 Red-throated Divers through off the Bill the only other sightings of note.
