18th Sep

A surprising day with an arrival of at least 150 Chiffchaffs along with a Short-eared Owl, a Barn Owl,  five  Blackcaps, a Garden Warbler, three Spotted Flycatchers, three Redstarts and a Whinchat. Birds passing overhead included a Buzzard, a Hobby, ten Tree Sparrows, six Grey Wagtails and 14 Reed Buntings and the Osprey reappeared around the Point in the morning. At least three Arctic Skuas and a Little Tern were seen offshore.

Six Porpoises were seen offshore and two Brown Hares were seen in the Desert.

A Delicate was the highlight of a small catch overnight.
