A surprisingly quiet day today considering the still and cloudy conditions. At least two Willow Warblers were present in the moat along with a single Firecrest.

A scattering of migrants were seen across the recording area including 25 Chiffchaffs, four Wheatears, two Black Redstarts, three Ravens, three Siskins, a Rock Pipit, a Swallow and a single Brambling.

Seawatching today produced 57 Sandwich Tern, 651 Brent Geese, five Wigeon, six Red-breasted Merganser and a Teal.


Also present on the sea were 20 Porpoise and a Grey Seal.
