7th January

With a chilly northeasterly blowing divers were still moving offshore and 3 Redwings and Fieldfare through at the Bill hinted at a few birds making precautionary relocations in case it turns any colder. The morning's diver totals were 74 Red-throated and a Great Northern through off the Bill, where a Great Crested Grebe also passed by and 30 Common Scoter on the move well out looked not to be the local winterers. Amongst all the talk of it turning colder 2 Canada Geese had other thoughts in mind and were already sniffing around their now regular breeding site on the harbour breakwaters; the harbour itself held the customary selection of waterfowl that included 2 Black-throated Divers and a Red-necked Grebe.
