The cold and breezy weather continued today, although there was a greatly reduced passage of seabirds was noted at sea. Nevertheless, a dark-bellied Brent Goose was seen around The Narrows, which is just the fourth record so far this year. A Whimbrel and three Snipe were also seen around The Narrows. Singles of Fieldfare, Song Thrush, Greenfinch and Goldfinch were noted inland.
