A calm and sunny but cold morning for a change. There were a few migrants on the land with nine Chiffchaffs, a Dartford Warbler at the Station Gorse again, four Firecrests, ten Black Redstarts, a late Whinchat and two Wheatears. A few birds also flew over including 14 Bramblings, 20 Lesser Redpolls, seven Siskins and ten Reed Buntings.
The colour-ringed first-winter Caspian Gull was still at the fishing boats but it was quiet offshore with just a Gadwall and 14 Mediterranean Gulls of note.
A Brown Hare was seen.
