A bright morning with a cold and brisk NW wind saw some light overhead passage, a handful of grounded migrants and very little movement offshore. The best of the grounded migrants were a Hobby, a Merlin, four Wheatears and 20 Chiffchaffs while visible migrants included a Buzzard, three Grey Wagtails, a Yellow Wagtail and the first Brambling of the autumn. The highlights from the sea were 38 Wigeon, a Sooty Shearwater and 15 Arctic Skuas.
Two Harvest Mouse nests were found around some small pools during some land management work at the Long Pits.
An evening check for orthoptera produced four Sickle-bearing Bush-crickets but there were very few singing Tree Crickets and Large Conehead was not found at all.
