27th Sept

A cloudy and breezy morning produced decent numbers of birds offshore but they were mostly feeding rather than moving through. Of note was a Balearic Shearwater, eight Arctic Skuas and a Great Skua. It was quiet on the land with just a couple of Firecrests, 25 Chiffchaffs and three Lesser Whitethroats whilst birds passing overhead included 150 Swallows, two Grey Wagtails and 105 Meadow Pipits

Ten Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
