14th January

Back to par today, with 2 Goosanders on the Fleet beyond Ferrybridge perhaps only tenuously qualifying as a Portland sighting. Twenty more Red-throated Divers passed by off the Bill, 6 Purple Sandpipers and 2 Black Redstarts were also at Bill, another Black Redstart was at Church Ope Cove and the Ferrybridge/Portland Harbour tally was varied and again included 4 Pale-bellied Brent Geese, 2 Black-throated Divers and 2 Red-necked Grebes.
