25th Oct

Yet another disappointing day in what seemed like good conditions for a few birds to arrive. Two Ring Ouzels were about the best on offer on the land whilst birds passing overhead included 20 Skylarks, four Swallows, three Rock Pipits, three Grey Wagtails, 23 Siskins, 19 Redpolls and a party of six Crossbills.
A couple of Mediterranean Gulls were feeding offshore and 119 Brent Geese and two Eiders flew west.

Two Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
