27th Sep

Good numbers of Chiffchaffs again and small numbers of Blackcaps but not a great deal else on the land and a steady movement of Swallows and House Martins south during the day.
Very quiet offshore with just four hunting Arctic Skuas, a Mediterranean Gull and an Arctic Tern this afternoon.

Six Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

The warm weather saw plenty of butterflies on the wing with three Clouded Yellows and a Holly Blue of note.
