27th Oct

A miserable day of increasing wind and rain made observations around the recording area difficult. Grounded migrants remain scarce and overhead passage was limited to 31 Swallows, two Grey Wagtails, a Rock Pipit, 13 Bramblings, 110 Redpolls, 660 Goldfinches and 127 Siskins. Seawatching produced a Velvet Scoter, a Black-throated Diver,  40 Mediterranean Gulls, 152 Sandwich Terns and eight Arctic Skuas of note. 

Two Porpoises were feeding offshore.

The moth trap produced a handful of moths overnight including a Pearly Underwing.
