28th Sep

The wind increased rapidly from mid-afternoon but before then there were a large arrival of Chiffchaffs, at least 100, and smaller numbers of Blackcaps but again not a great deal else.
Overhead passage was also limited with two Rock Pipits and a Grey Wagtail of interest.
Over three hours of seawatching produced a Great Skua, about ten Arctic Skuas and seven Mediterranean Gulls.

Six Porpoises and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.

Elsewhere, the Buff-breasted Sandpiper was in the fields behind Scotney Pit but remains very hard to see and at least seven Cattle Egrets were with the cattle near Boulderwall Farm on the RSPB Reserve.
