17th to 18th November

Two Woodcocks were caught at the lighthouse overnight on the 17th, although the weather which produced these failed to ground any other migrants. A Hooded Crow was amongst a large flock of 60 Carrion Crows and four Rooks at the North end of the island in the morning. 26 Blackbirds, a Fieldfare, eight Song Thrushes, 17 Redwings, two Bramblings and two Chiffchaffs were present in the island's gardens, whilst a Lapwing flew around the Narrows. The highlights of the 18th included a ringtail Hen Harrier which flew along the summit ridge mid-morning, a Short-eared Owl in the wetlands and a Grey Heron flying South out to sea.
