17th January

A day of more sameness: 2 Red-throated Divers and 2 Eider off the Bill, the Merlin at the Bill, the Rosy Starling at Easton, the Black Redstart at Osprey Quay, 4 Black-necked Grebes, a Great Northern Diver and a Red-necked Grebe in Portland Harbour and 800 Mediterranean Gulls and 3 Bar-tailed Godwits at Ferrybridge.

Beautiful it certainly isn't but it's interesting to see the progress of moult in the Rosy Starling © Mark Litjens:
