29th Oct

Despite yet more seemingly good conditions for migrants there was very little to be seen on the land with just a couple each of Firecrest, Ring Ouzel and Rock Pipit and the second Yellowhammer of the autumn of any note.
Seawatching was quite productive despite the flat calm conditions with 356 Brent Geese, six Red-breasted Mergansers, singles of Black-throated and Great Northern Divers, Sooty Shearwater and Pomarine Skua, six Great Skuas and 38 Mediterranean Gulls passing west.

A Gem was the only moth of note from the traps overnight although the first area record of an Oak Rustic was caught at Greatstone.

At least eight Porpoises were seen offshore.
