Common Goldeneye (26th island record) was seen off the Narrows early morning as it battled southward into a gale force South-westerly wind. Apart from this, very little else was seen on the bird front: the male Bullfinch was seen at Cristin, a couple of Blackcaps remained from earlier in the week, the two Brent Geese remained on the narrows and two Common Scoters flew past at sea.
In other news, a Satellite moth was trapped at Cristin overnight. This is the second record for the island, the first was caught earlier this year in March.
