A wet and windy day which produced a little bit of movement offshore but not a great deal on the land to get excited about. Nearly four hours of seawatching produced 310 Brent Geese, a Great Skua and 26 Sandwich Terns of note. The best the land could offer was two Firecrests. An unusual find in the trapping area was this Harvest Mouse winter nest.
