18th Sep

Another hard day in strong NE winds which continue to produce very little. There were several spells of seawatching but all they could come up with were a handful of lingering Arctic Skuas and three Mediterranean Gulls. Landbirds were very few and far between with just a Whinchat, eight Wheatears, three Tree Sparrows and a Grey Wagtail of note.

Four Porpoise and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore and a Brown Hare was seen in the Desert.
