10th December

With rain holding of for much longer than forecast there was ample opportunity for quite decent coverage today. Not surprisingly so late in the year, new arrivals were few but did include 2 Redwings at the Bill and another 14 at Foundry Close. The Portland Harbour Goosanders topped at least 14, with 6 Black-necked Grebes, a Red-throated Diver and a Great Northern Diver also there. Two Common Scoter and a Red-throated Diver passed through off the Bill.

Immigrant moths included 2 Rusty-dot Pearl, a Pearly Underwing and a Silver Y at the Obs and a White-speck at Sweethill.
