Little new avian immigration was in evidence, but a fair selection of birds still remained from previous days. The Wryneck put in another fleeting appearance and the Icterine Warbler and the Pied Flycatcher spent the morning feeding around the plantation. Other landbirds included the Cuckoo, a couple of Tree Pipits, three Yellow Wagtails, two Grey Wagtails, 25 Wheatears, a Sedge Warbler, a Reed Warbler, a Garden Warbler, 17 Chiffchaffs, ten Willow Warblers, three Goldcrests, two Spotted Flycatchers, two Treecreepers, a Siskin and a Lapland Bunting. The highlights of sea passage were the first Red-throated Diver of the autumn, a Black Tern, a couple of Arctic Skuas and a Wigeon.
