29th November

Breezier than anticipated and far cooler than recent days, the day produced no new passerine migrants but the sea was far livelier with 8 Red-throated Divers, a Great Northern Diver and two Velvet Scoters past the Bill. However, it was the Harbour that really came to life with the second Black-throated Diver putting in a return appearance along with two Eiders, a Black Guillemot and late news of a fly-by Long-tailed Duck.
