26th November

A shocker of a day with early drizzly outbreaks soon coalescing into continual rain that scuppered all further fieldwork attempts. A late Sooty Shearwater through off the Bill was the day's highlight, with 6 Red-throated Divers also through and 23 Common Scoter settled offshore. Grounded migrant interest was confined to singles of Redwing at the Bill and Blackcap at the Grove, whilst the only other news concerned a second Goosander joining the long-stayer at Ferrybridge.
