23rd November

Today's stiff northwesterly wasn't much cop on the migrant front, with 16 Redwings, 15 Siskins, 3 Fieldfares, 2 Snipe and singles of Woodcock and Reed Bunting the day's arrivals at the Bill, but scarcity-wise the lingering Hen Harrier there and the sporadic Goosander at Ferrybridge provided ample compensation. Singles of Short-eared Owl and Merlin also remained at the Bill and the late Sanderling was again amongst the waders at Ferrybridge.
