2nd Nov

A bright and sunny but very frosty morning with a trickle of birds passing overhead and little in the way of grounded migrants. A Woodlark, 33 Skylarks, six Bramblings, nine Crossbills, 35 Redpolls and 30 Siskins overhead were noteworthy as was a Woodcock and a Ring Ouzel seen in the trapping area. A flock of 560 Kittiwakes feeding offshore was also of note.

One Porpoise was seen offshore.
