27th January

Even with far less than complete coverage it was apparent that there was a pulse of Red-throated Diver activity offshore, with a succession of mainly small flocks totalling 35 birds relocating toward Lyme Bay from points eastward; sadly, increasingly reduced visibility also put paid to observations as the morning went on, with the 2 lingering Eider and small flock of Common Scoter the only sea observations. The 3 Redpolls and single Merlin and Black Redstart were also still at the Bill, another Black Redstart was at Blacknor and the Rosy Starling was again at Easton.
