30th Oct

A strong NW wind was blowing again this morning and there were relatively few birds to be seen. The best of the morning's seawatch were a Tufted Duck, four Mediterranean Gulls, three Little Gulls and nine Sandwich Terns. It was even quieter in the afternoon but a first-winter Caspian Gull and an adult Yellow-legged Gull came to the offerings of bread. A Rough-legged Buzzard was seen from the RSPB reserve as it flew out to sea over the Lifeboat Station.
Very quiet on the land in difficult conditions.

Two Porpoises were feeding offshore and a Brown Hare was seen along the roadside.
