There was a decent passage of finches this morning with 870 Goldfinches, 120 Linnets and 27 Siskins but not much else overhead and just five Firecrests and 25 Goldcrests of note on the land.
Seawatching was reasonable for the first couple of hours with two Gadwall, 590 Gannets, a Great Skua, 126 auks and a surprisingly high count of 71 Sandwich Terns passing through.
Two Porpoises were feeding offshore.
