A wet and calm morning seemed to promise plenty but on the whole failed to deliver. A Wood Lark was found just north of the trapping area and two Crossbills flew SE. Other grounded migrants included a decent total of 20 Firecrests along with 12 Chiffchaffs, three Willow Warblers, nine Blackcaps, a Fieldfare, five Song Thrushes and two Bramblings. A Jack Snipe was also seen near the Pumphouse. The sea was very quiet.
