22nd Oct

Better conditions today but still very windy and much cooler with the wind veering into the NW. Not a great deal in the way of new birds to be seen but a Ring Ouzel was found and a few Goldfinches, Siskins and Redpolls continued to trickle south. A Dartford Warbler and five Firecrests were also seen.
Very little movement offshore but two Shags made an appearance and yesterdays first-winter Caspian Gull and adult Yellow-legged Gull were seen again.

Two Porpoises and singles of Grey Seal, Badger and Brown Hare were also seen.
