27th January

Today was a romp-home winner in the Grimness Stakes, with the rain that set in yesterday afternoon lasting through the night and right on into a second afternoon. The only reports from the diehards venturing out were of 3 Purple Sandpipers and singles of Black Redstart, Blackcap and Chiffchaff at the Bill, 3 Black-necked Grebes and 2 Great Northern Divers in Portland Harbour and 150 Dunlin and 90 Brent Geese at Ferrybridge.
