19th February

Not so much about today, with 3 Redwings at the Bill the only noticeable new arrivals (yesterday's extra Stonechats had all moved on). The Hume's Warbler lingered on at Thumb Lane, at least 1 Short-eared Owl was still at the Bill, 11 Red-throated Divers passed through off the Bill and better coverage of Portland Harbour than of late came up with several Black-necked Grebes, 3 Slavonian Grebes and singles of Black-throated Diver, Eider and Goosander.
