It was a bit of a grim day: strong north-easterly winds brought the wind chill down into the single figures, whilst heavy downpours resided over the island for most of the day. A total of 67 Manx Shearwaters were noted off the South Tip in the morning, whilst a scan of The Narrows revealed 2 Dunlins, four Whimbrels and eight Turnstones. Three Swifts, two Sedge Warblers, six Whitethroats, one Blackcap, 13 Spotted Flycatchers, one Siskin and three Lesser Redpolls were the only new migrants that managed to make landfall in the dreary conditions.
