22nd Oct

With a fresh and cold NW wind blowing migration was at a very low ebb with just a handful of finches passing through and very little else of interest. 
The sea was also quiet with the exception of around 1500 Mediterranean Gulls still feeding offshore and with a couple of Arctic Skuas in attendance.

Despite the cold night the moth traps were surprisingly productive again with two Vestals and a Delicate of some note.
