9th January

Not a great deal of coverage today in blustery, cool northwesterlies and the only reports were of long- or short-term lingerers: the Grey Phalarope at Chesil Cove, the Black-throated Diver and Red-necked Grebe in Portland Harbour, 50 Common Scoter off the Bill and the Cetti's Warbler and 8 Purple Sandpipers at the Bill.
