22nd Nov

A calm and sunny morning but generally quiet for birds. Fifty-six Wigeon, five Lapwings and six Mediterranean Gulls were the best the sea had to offer. A Snipe and three Chiffchaffs were seen in the Trapping Area and a Rock Pipit, six Swallows and five Redpolls flew over..

Two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.

A Mediterranean Stick-insect was still showing in the Observatory garden.
