Two Little Egrets flying north over the island were a surprise, and were easily the highlight of another tempestuous day. A Blackcap and six Chiffchaffs were noted sheltering from the ferocity of the elements, 300 Starlings were counted, and an apparent increase in the number of Song Thrushes, to around 20, made them the most numerous species of thrush on the island; with 17 Redwings, ten Blackbirds and a Fieldfare also present. Raptors included two Kestrels and a Merlin.
