18th November

Although it did brighten up as the day went on, wind and rain had featured throughout the morning and limited enthusiasm for anything other than perfunctory coverage. A few small parties of Chaffinches and Goldfinches heading away to the south between the showers and grounded singles of Yellow-legged Gull and Redwing constituted the only evidence of new arrivals at the Bill where the sea was busy with established winterers but devoid of storm-driven newcomers. The only other news was of the 12 Goosanders through again at Ferrybridge.
