With six of the regular observers on an away-day to Cap Gris Nez, France coverage was severely limited. Even so, the first Ring Ouzel and Brambling of the autumn were seen. Other bits and pieces included two Buzzards, a Firecest, nine Blackcaps, two Redwings, 24 Redpolls and 75 Siskins.

A bat-trapping session at the Long Pits produced three Nathusius's Pipistrelles and a Whiskered Bat. A Brown Hare and a Badger were also seen this evening.
