5th Oct

Gale force westerly winds for a time overnight remained fresh through the morning and resulted in very few birds being seen. The best of the mornings seawatch was a Sooty Shearwater and six Arctic Skuas and a Great Skua were lingering offshore again.
Overhead passage was limited to several hundred each of Swallow and House Martin and a Grey Wagtail whilst two Buzzards also flew over. Three Wheatears were also seen.

Two Porpoises and a Grey Seal were seen offshore.
