The cold and strong north-easterly wind continues and more or less limited any observations to the sea. The unlikely highlight of the day was a party of three Mandarin Ducks which flew east shortly after dawn. Other bits and pieces of interest included four Pintails, six Grey Plovers, two Snipe and three Mediterranean Gulls.
A Firecrest was seen in the trapping area.
Three Porpoises were seen offshore.
