Torrential rain and gale to storm-force winds from the North-east kept most birders indoors, with most passerines keeping a low profile in the few sheltered places too. Four Red-throated Divers, 118 Manx Shearwaters, 18 Common Scoters, seven Sandwich Terns and five Puffins were seen off the North end in the morning. The male Whinchat and Redstart remained in their respective places, whilst three Tree Pipits were seen along the mountainside and a Sparrowhawk flew through the withies.
