19th December

Another lovely mild, still and bright day saw the Yellow-browed Warbler show again at least once at Pennsylvania Castle. A samey selection from the rest of the day's fieldwork included 10 Common Scoter through off the Bill, 3 Purple Sandpipers and 2 Firecrests at the Bill, single Black Redstarts at Church Ope Cove, Haylands and Blacknor, the Blackcap at Weston and 7 Great Northern Divers in Portland Harbour.

A single Dark Sword Grass was trapped overnight at the Obs.
