21st November

Today's unrelenting gloom and and stiff southwesterly did nothing for the land but did see some movement on the sea, with 266 Kittiwakes, 34 Common Scoter, 2 Red-throated Divers and a Sooty Shearwater through off the Bill. There was little in evidence by way of new migrant arrivals but the Pallas's Warbler was still at the Obs, a scatter of presumably now wintering Black Redstarts, Chiffchaffs and Goldcrests lingered on and the Rosy Starling was still at Easton; a Red-necked Grebe and a Black-throated Diver were also still amongst the regulars in Portland Harbour.
