A miserable day of cold, strong NE winds and fairly constant rain. The Short-toed Treecreeper was reportedly seen in the early morning but I am not aware of any sightings later in the day. The Glaucous Gull was also feeding along the surf line again. Commoner migrants included a Firecrest, two Wheatears and a White Wagtail.
The "nocmig" recorder produced 63 Redwings.
Two Porpoises were feeding offshore and two Brown Hares were seen at the fishing boats.
