10th Oct


Not a great deal around today but a Yellow-browed Warbler which appeared in the Old lighthouse Garden was a very welcome find. Birds passing overhead included 80 Swallows, 40 House Martins, a Rock Pipit, 27 Redpolls, 37 Siskins and ten Reed Buntings.

Seawatching was very slow again. Sandwich Terns and Gannets moved west in decent numbers and five Arctic Skuas and five Mediterranean Gulls were lingering.

Three Porpoises were feeding offshore.
