A comparatively quiet day saw a small passage of thrushes overhead, although no scarcities in the gardens. Flocks of Fieldfares passed overhead during the day, amounting to 240 birds, whilst 84 Blackbirds, 28 Song Thrushes, 64 Redwings and two Mistle Thrushes were also present. 238 Chaffinches, flew North-east over the island during the day, along with 11 Bramblings, two Lesser Redpolls and four Reed Buntings. A Barn Owl was seen inside one of the Lighthouse outhouses in the afternoon.

Buzzards (upper) and Sparrowhawks (lower) continue to hunt prey around the island
 Goldcrest-numbers at the moment are hovering around the 30 mark
Small numbers of Bramblings (top) and Greenfinches (lower) are passing overhead with Chaffinches at the on clear days such as today
