An increasingly windy day which produced a Pomarine Skua and three Mediterranean Gulls among a handful of birds offshore.
There was a surprising arrival of 19 Firecrests and 110 Goldcrests along with 34 Redwings in the bushes while overhead passage was quite heavy with 17 Skylarks, 78 Meadow Pipits, a Grey Wagtail, ten Bramblings, 27 Redpolls, 65 Siskins, 800 Goldfinches and 18 Crossbills of note.
A Common Seal and a Porpoise were feeding offshore.
