There was a bit of an arrival 'crests this morning with seven Firecrests and 60 Goldcrests seen but not a great deal else in the way of grounded migrants. There were plenty of finches on the move with 13 Bramblings, 850 Goldfinches, 70 Siskins and 70 Redpolls among them and also the first two Bullfinches of the autumn and a Grey Wagtail.
Very quiet offshore with a lingering Great Skua and 400 Kittiwakes being the only birds of note.
