After the calm winds yesterday, it was back to gale force South-easterly winds today, making it difficult to find any migrants at all. Two Black Redstarts, one at the Lighthouse and another at the Abbey, were the most noteworthy birds around, whilst an impressive 3540 Starlings flew over the island in the morning. The only passerine-migrants inland were those from previous days seekig shelter in dense vegetation: seven Blackbirds, four Song Thrushes, a Redwing, two Blackcaps, two Chiffchaffs, five Goldcrests, two Blue Tits, two Great Tits and 34 Chaffinches were recorded.
