29th Aug

Rain from just after dawn until mid-afternoon grounded a decent number of migrants with 11 Pied Flycatchers, five Spotted Flycatchers, seven Lesser Whitethroats, six Whinchats and two Redstarts of particular note along with a few Willow Warblers, Whitethroats and Reed Warblers. Overhead passage remains at a very low level though with just two Buzzards and a few Yellow Wagtails being seen. A Merlin was hunting around the fishing boats for much of the afternoon.

The sea was generally very quiet with the usual four or so lingering Arctic Skuas being joined by a Great Skua. A Balearic Shearwater which flew west this evening was of note.

Ten Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
