31st Dec

The year ended with another day of dismal weather. Over two hours of seawatching in the morning produced 243 Red-throated Divers, 18 Fulmars, 379 Gannets, 1463 Guillemots and 283 Kittiwakes passing west. The regular first-winter Caspian Gull was feeding at the fishing boats again and a first-winter Glaucous Gull was seen at the Patch in the afternoon.
A very brief check of the trapping area produced a Bullfinch.
