A pretty hard day for watching with a strong and cold easterly wind blasting across the Point and very few birds seemingly present. A first-winter Caspian Gull was found at the fishing boats along with three Mediterranean Gulls.
A few migrants on the land included three Firecrests. 23 Goldcrests and 11 Chiffchaffs whilst and another late Greenshank, a Brambling, 340 Goldfinches, 17 Siskins and 20 Redpolls also flew over.
