A beautiful calm day saw a large improvement bird-wise after the days of wet and windy weather. A Little Egret flying South over the Narrows mid-morning was the scarcest sighting of the day, although two Teals, two Short-eared Owls and an abetinus Chiffchaff were also recorded. Three Bramblings flew overhead along with three Fieldfares, whilst 34 Blackbirds, 18 Song Thrushes and five Redwings were present elsewhere. Three Merlins were seen chasing the same unfortunate Linnet in Solfach in the morning, and a Buzzard was also seen here.
