Slightly further south at the Narrows familiar numbers and species were observed. 32 Grey Seals, Oystercatchers numbering 59, 11 Redshanks, nine Turnstones and singles of Whimbrel, Rock Pipit and Pied Wagtail. The Curlews had moved away from the Narrows and were seen along the West Coast where 16 of them worked the short grassy fields. Nearby were an additional nine Oystercatchers and three Shags bobbed just off shore.
Counts from out at sea were low with just one Fulmar, four Black Headed Gulls, two Kittiwakes, two Guillemots and 15 Razorbills seen.
Other counts totalled 27 Wrens, three Dunnocks, seven Robins, three Stonechats, seven Blackbirds, a Redwing in the Observatory garden along with a Blue Tit and Great Tit, six Chaffinches and eight Linnets.
