Today saw a small improvement in the number of migrants about although most were passing overhead or dropping in only briefly. Some of the more interesting records included 55 Skylarks, 1300 Starlings, two Ring Ouzels, 40 Blackbirds, 17 Fieldfares, 45 Song Thrushes, 80 Redwings, two Grey Wagtails, seven Rock Pipits, 400 Chaffinches, eight Bramblings and 35 Redpolls.
The sea was very quiet with just a trickle of Brent Geese and a Great Skua passing through.
An adult Yellow-legged Gull was roosting at the fishing boats.

Two Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore and a Weasel was seen in the trapping area.
