25th December

An often very wet and windy Christmas Day with very little coverage. The only worthwhile bird sightings came from Ferrybridge where 4 Pale-bellied Brent Geese, a Great Northern Diver and a Guillemot made the list.

Despite continuing unsuitable trapping conditions it remained mild and a few immigrant moth were still on the wing, with singles of Dark Sword Grass and Pearly Underwing caught overnight at the Grove.
