13th January

An attempt at breaking the record for the number of days that can squeezed onto one sightings sheet at the Obs continued apace, with today's offerings even fewer than yesterday's despite it being a dry, sunny (but still pretty windy) day. Six Dark-bellied Brent Geese and a single Red-throated Diver passed by off the Bill and 3 Eider and a Curlew were at Portland Harbour (...and a cursory attempt for the Cirl Bunting drew a blank).
