17th December

Either very little or very unproductive coverage today. The only reports were of 4 Red-throated and a Great Northern Diver through off the Bill where the semi-resident Common Scoter group had increased to 14.

There's still plenty of Little Owl activity afoot around the Obs; usually at this time of year they only start calling once it's got fully dark but on recent evenings one's taken to coming out just after sunset and advertising his presence from the electric poles beside the Obs Quarry © Martin Cade:
