A murky, damp and breezy morning saw a small arrival of migrants with a notable increase in Robin numbers along with a Merlin, two Fieldfares, ten Redwings, a Mistle Thrush, six Black Redstarts, two Wheatears and a White Wagtail whilst a trickle of birds overhead included a Buzzard, a Redshank and 21 Siskins.
Seawatching saw a steady of trickle of mainly wildfowl moving east including two Garganey, 38 Shovelers, five Pintails, eight Teal, 548 Common Scoters, nine Red-breasted Mergansers and 50 Sandwich Terns.
A check of a few gulls roosting at the fishing gulls this afternoon produced a second-winter Caspian Gull - intriguingly it is metal-ringed and from what can be seen from some images of it it is likely to be of Czech origin.
