Autumn passage came to an almost complete standstill as rain and poor visibility rolled in. A Red-throated Diver, four Mediterranean Gulls and a Little Gull were seen passing by through the mist, while the best of the landbirds present were a Blackcap, a Brambling, seven Siskins, six Fieldfares, eight Song Thrushes and a couple of Redwings
