Over 1200 Gannets passed west this morning and this afternoon there were 200 Kittiwakes, two Caspian Gulls and singles of Mediterranean and Yellow-legged Gulls feeding at the fishing boats.
Quiet on the land with just a Chiffchaff and a Bullfinch in the trapping area and 37 Goldfinches passing overhead of note. 

A late Red Admiral was also seen.

Elsewhere, the Cattle Egret was still being seen around Boulderwall Farm on the RSPB Reserve..
