29th Sep

A dull and murky start and then rain from 1000hrs and for the rest of the day. The main feature of the day was a big early morning movement of birds overhead including 7000 Swallows, 1500 House Martins, 14 House Sparrows, 118 alba Wagtails, a Grey Wagtail, 810 Meadow Pipits, a Rock Pipit, 1350 Linnets, 450 Goldfinches, 32 Siskins and 47 Reed Buntings. There were very few grounded migrants with just 12 Chiffchaffs, six Blackcaps and seven Wheatears of interest.
Good numbers of Gannets and Sandwich Terns continued to move west and an adult Pomarine Skua was of note. The six regular Arctic Skuas were still harassing terns throughout the day and a Great Skua, an Arctic Tern and a Mediterranean Gull were also seen.

Six Porpoises, a Grey Seal and two Brown Hares were seen.

Three Delicates were trapped overnight.
