19th Feb

A nice, bright and relatively calm morning reduced passage offshore although huge numbers of gulls are still in the area and included  at least 20 Mediterranean Gulls feeding offshore.
Checks of the trapping area revealed four Long-tailed Tits, a Chiffchaffa Firecrest and two Redwings while a male Black Redstart was also seen in a private garden.

Two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.
