A fine morning saw a small arrival of birds on the land with the highlights being 11 Black Redstarts along with a Merlin, nine Chiffchaffs, three Firecrests, 62 Redwings, two Bramblings and two Siskins of note. It was very quiet offshore with just an Eider and 15 Mediterranean Gulls passing through and a brief reappearance of the Iceland Gull.
