11th Nov

A dank, dreary day but with a fair bit of activity offshore and a few birds on the land. 
The Grey Phalarope was still present and other notable birds at sea included two Sooty Shearwaters east, two Great Northern Divers (both together on the sea), two Shags, 1000+ Gannets, a Great Skua, a Little Gull and ten Mediterranean Gulls.
At least two Dartford Warblers were found around the Point whilst a Firecrest was seen at the north end of the Long Pits along with a Blackcap, eight Redwings and a Bullfinch.

Two Porpoises and a Grey Seal were also seen offshore.

Elsewhere, a Cattle Egret reappeared in the fields at Boulderwall Farm on the RSPB Reserve.
