30th November

A rather quiet morning kicked into gear with the arrival of a Pallas's Warbler in the obs garden, which briefly called before appearing in the undergrowth below the patio. However from there, it quickly proceeded to flit across the wall into the depths of the garden where, not for want of trying, it was not seen again. Other birds logged around the Bill included 3 Redwing, 2 Fieldfare, 1 Black Redstart, 2 Water Rail plus singles of Chiffchaff, Goldcrest, Cetti's Warbler, Firecrest and Blackcap (different from yesterday's). Sea passage past the Bill included 15 Common Scoter, 10 Red-throated Diver and a Fulmar. A Goosander and 3 Bar-tailed Godwits were still at Ferrybridge.
