There was not much to report after another uneventful day, and it seemed that the autumn had, in terms of bird migration, more or less come to an end. Around 750 Kittiwakes were feeding offshore, along with a couple of Black-headed Gulls and Common Gulls, and 400 assorted Auks flew past. 300 Starlings spent the day on the island, with ten Blackbirds, six Song Thrushes and a Fieldfare. Two Lesser Redpolls, six Goldfinches and 40 Chaffinches were counted and a Merlin was on the South End. A Risso’s Dolphin was seen off the north end of the island.
