5th Nov

There was a bit of passage this morning with a Swallow, a Ring Ouzel, five Bramblings and at least five Bullfinches of note whilst a minimum of four Dartford Warblers were seen among the broom and gorse around the Point.
The highlight of a very quiet seawatch was a Black-throated Diver whilst the regular first-winter Caspian Gull, four Mediterranean Gulls and six Sandwich Terns were seen at the fishing boats in the afternoon.

A bull Grey Seal was also feeding offshore.

Despite the cold conditions a Hummingbird Hawkmoth was seen in the Lighthouse garden.
