29th Nov

A very cold morning produced a few birds on the land with two Fieldfares, seven Redwings, five Bramblings and the first Snow Bunting of the autumn/winter passing overhead. The Bullfinch was seen in the trapping area again.
There was very little movement offshore but a Great Skua and a Mediterranean Gull were lingering. Three Merlins were also seen hunting around the beach.
