A thin scatter of migrants on the land and signs of a bit of movement offshore. The best on offer on the land were two Snipe, a Woodcock, a Merlin, seven Firecrests, two Chiffchaffs and a Wheatear. Seawatching this afternoon produced an excellent total of 84 Little Gulls moving up channel while a Great Skua, a Mediterranean Gull and 1500 auks during the day were also noteworthy.
At least seven Porpoises were seen offshore. Sadly a Brown Hare fell victim to traffic this morning.
