26th January

A Siberian Chiffchaff coming out of the woodwork at Blacknor was the day's only surprise. The selection at the Bill included 15 Red-throated Divers and 5 Brent Geese through on the sea, the 40 or so Common Scoter still settled offshore and 8 Lapwings, a Golden Plover, one of the Black Redstarts, the Cettti's Warbler and the Chiffchaff on/overhead on the land; another Chiffchaff was also again at Southwell.
