24th November

The birds seemed to have as little enthusiasm for today's increasingly dreary and blustery conditions as the birders, and there few reports of particular note. At the Bill, 5 Redwings and a single Chiffchaff looked to be the only new arrivals on the ground, and visible passage to confined to a few small parties of Goldfinches and 11 Meadow Pipits; 8 Common Scoter and 3 Great Skuas also passed through on the sea there. The only other reports came from Ferrybridge, where 15 Pale-bellied Brents were amongst 1200 Dark-bellied Brent Geese, and singles of Grey Plover and Redshank dropped in.

On a milder night a lone Silver Y was the only immigrant making it into the Obs moth-traps.
