3rd December

Pretty miserable dreary, breezy and chilly conditions were the order of the day and enthusiasm for fieldwork was at a low ebb. New arrivals included a Redwing at the Bill, a Short-eared Owl over Wide Street and 2 Egyptian Geese over Ferrybridge, whilst long-stayers putting in appearances included a Firecrest at the Obs, single Black Redstarts at the Bill and Broadcroft and 2 of the Goosanders at Ferrybridge.
