29th December

A lovely sunny, still day but disappointingly few rewards on the birding front. Nine Brent Geese and 2 Red-throated Divers passed through off the Bill, both the Chiffchaff and Siberian Chiffchaff were again at Avalanche Road and 32 Oystercatchers, 5 Bar-tailed Godwits, 2 Goosanders and an Eider were at Ferrybridge/Portland Harbour.
