Fresh southerly winds again produced a bit of movement offshore with six Shelducks, 18 Wigeon, five Red-breasted Mergansers, 500 Gannets, five Dunlin, 230 Kittiwakes and 320 auks. A Merlin was also hunting offshore.
It was quiet on the land with just five Snipe and three Chiffchaffs in the area.

I also played the Audiomoth last night with six hours of recording producing a Lapwing, two groups of Golden Plover, 14 Dunlin, a Snipe, 17 Blackbirds, 80 Redwings and seven Song Thrushes. There were also 12 series of calls which sounded like Stone-curlew again.

A Grey Seal and a Porpoise were seen.
