22nd Dec

A check of the trapping area produced a new species for the year in the form of a lovely Siberian Chiffchaff which was consorting with a small flock of birds which also included four Firecrests and a Common Chiffchaff. A Dartford Warbler was also found and a Little Egret flew over.
Good numbers of Gannets and auks were feeding offshore and a first-winter Caspian Gull made a brief appearance on the beach.
