23rd and 24th January

Poor weather on 23rd resulted in not a single entry on the day-sheet but quieter conditions on 24th allowed for better coverage at the Bill. A total of 18 Purple Sandpipers was this winter's highest count to date; singles of Short-eared Owl and Black Redstart were still about, 220 Gannets were feeding offshore and 3 Red-throated and a single Great Northern Diver were logged.
