24th Sep

A day dominated by wind and rain. A check of the bushes was hard work and produced just a Firecrest of note. The sea was watched for most of the day and final totals included five Balearic Shearwaters, two Manx Shearwaters, 1250 Sandwich Terns, five Great Skuas, an adult Pomarine Skua and 34 Arctic Skuas of note.

Four Porpoises and a male Grey Seal were feeding offshore and a Brown Hare was seen on the land.
