24th January

Drearier but quiet conditions for the duration today. A Great White Egret south over Ferrybridge was a first for the year, whilst a count of 1300 Mediterranean Gulls at Ferrybridge was their highest total of the winter; also of note were 6 Lapwings overhead at the Bill, a Chiffchaff at Eight Kings Quarry, a Merlin overhead at Easton and a Redwing overhead at Blacknor. Routine fare included 12 Purple Sandpipers, the Cetti's Warbler and the Chiffchaff at the Bill and 3 Red-throated Divers through on the sea there.
