The boredom of another very quiet and uneventful day was punctuated by a minute or so of excitement as an adult Bonaparte’s Gull flew south past the west coast. Sea passage was generally rather slow, but a good total of 13 Little Gulls were seen along with 13 Mediterranean Gulls, a Pomarine Skua, a Red-throated Diver and a ‘Commic’ Tern. There was little to report in the way of landbirds, but the two Snow Buntings and the Barn Owl were still present and the number of Blackcaps rose to at least eight. Other odds and ends included three Herons, a Woodcock, a Collared Dove, 35 Skylarks, a Fieldfare, two Chiffchaffs, 12 Goldcrests, nine Blue Tits, eight Great Tits, a Brambling and a Reed Bunting.
