Today was, all in all, a fairly uneventful day, with moderate Easterlies and a dark, overcast sky. A Short-eared Owl was flushed from the trackside, three Woodcocks were seen in the island’s gardens, and two Snipe and a Water Rail were seen in the Wetlands. Numbers of passerines inland remained much the same as in previous days, with totals today amounting to: two Skylarks, 10 Meadow Pipits, 46 Blackbirds, two Song Thrushes, three Redwings, three Blackcaps, two Chiffchaffs, eight Goldcrests, three Blue Tits, three Great Tits, 900 Starlings, 48 Chaffinches, four Goldfinches, 22 Linnets, two Lesser Redpolls and a Bullfinch. The two Brent Geese remained on the narrows with three Lapwings, and a Mediterranean Gull flew past at sea.
