6th Oct

The strong to gale force easterly winds continued and made for more difficult birding conditions. A flock of 25 White-fronted Geese, a Buzzard and three Grey Wagtails passed overhead whilst the highlights among the grounded migrants included two Firecrests, 28 Chiffchaffs, four Blackcaps, three Ring Ouzels, 20 Song Thrushes and a Redstart
Even though there was five hours of seawatching during the day it was also hardwork with just 16 Pintails, a Velvet Scoter, six Arctic Skuas, one Great Skua, 15 Mediterranean Gulls and an Arctic Tern of interest.

Five Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
