4th December

Apologies for the lack of blog post yesterday, but it appears we have become stuck in the winter doldrums, with steady rain putting halt to much of the day's birding. Still, a Velvet Scoter off the Bill, 2 Knot, 2 Curlew and 2 Shelduck at Ferrybridge and 2 Great Northern Divers, a Slavonian Grebe and Black-necked Grebe in Portland Harbour managed to save the day.
