A day of much lighter winds, still from the east, saw a reasonable selection of passerines making an appearance during the day. A total of at least five Chiffchaffs was very good, considering the time of year, whilst a single female Blackcap, 10 Goldcrests, a Grey Wagtail, a Brambling, a Lesser Redpoll, seven Song Thrushes and 650 Starlings were also seen during the day. Out to sea, the usual gull flock was seen at intervals during the day, with a minimum count of 21 Mediterranean Gulls made in the morning, amongst some 450 Black-headed Gulls and 230 Kittiwakes. The usual Hooded Crow remained around The Narrows.
