30th Sep

A quiet day again with a very much reduced passage offshore and little in the way of grounded migrants although a few birds passed overhead. Of note from over four hours of seawatching were 14 Mediterranean Gulls and 30 Arctic Skuas. Birds passing overhead included a Yellow Wagtail, a Grey Wagtail, 300 Meadow Pipits and 120 Linnets.

Six Porpoise and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.
