23rd Oct

A fresh, clear day which began quite cold and generally uneventful. Mediterranean Gulls continued to dominate offshore with 270 birds this afternoon along with at least 54 Sandwich Terns.
Very quiet on the land and the best of the visible migration were two Merlins, two Rock Pipits, 22 Redpolls and 12 Siskins.

A Porpoise and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

The afternoon saw a steady arrival of Red Admirals coming in from the east.

The day, however, ended with a spectacular sunset.
