1st December

Today's clear and frosty start, which kept the garden ponds frozen for most of the morning, saw little in the way of avian arrivals with the exception of a late departing Swallow seen from the Bill. At sea, just 5 Red-Throated Divers and a single Great Northern Diver were recorded and at least 1 Black Redstart and the Merlin were still present. Elsewhere at Ferrybridge 2 Knot, 1 Curlew and 2 Goosanders were logged.
