After all the birds feeding offshore over the last few days it was quite different today with just small numbers of auks and Gannets to be seen although Great Crested Grebes increased to around 1500 birds during the day. The regular first-winter Caspian Gull was still present and the juvenile Glaucous Gull made at least one brief appearance this afternoon.
A few birds of note on the land included a Dartford Warbler just south of the Observatory, the Grey Wagtail feeding around the settling tanks behind the seawatch hide again and Siskin and Bullfinch in the trapping area. A Little Grebe was also seen on the northern Long Pit.
A Red Admiral was also seen.
