29th January

A Glaucous Gull lingering around Chesil Cove was a welcome oddity on what turned out to be a pleasant, intermittently sunny day, albeit always briskly breezy. Other odds and ends making the list included the 3 Redpolls and Merlin at the Bill and single Black Redstarts at Weston and Osprey Quay.
