12th Oct

Another fairly quiet day again despite what seemed like good conditions this morning. There was just a thin scatter of migrants on the ground with 28 Chiffchaffs, three Ring Ouzels and 30 Song Thrushes being the best. Birds passing overhead included 31 Fieldfares, two Mistle Thrushes, seven Grey Wagtails, three Rock Pipits, three Bramblings, 35 Siskins and 19 Reed Buntings.
An Arctic Skua, around 20 Mediterranean Gulls and two Little Gulls were seen offshore.

Two Grey Seals were also feeding offshore.
