A day of strong to gale-force easterly winds made observations on the land very difficult and the sea disappointing.
Migrants on the land included three Firecrests, 50 Chiffchaffs, a Reed Warbler, 20 Song Thrushes, six Redwings, 12 Stonechats and the one of the days highlights in the form of seven Ring Ouzels.
At sea, 265 Brent Geese flew west and four Arctic Skuas flew east and a Puffin was an unexpected sighting.
Six Porpoises were seen offshore.
