Today saw a decent respite from the rain of late though conditions were still breezy. A choppy but atmospheric sea-scape produced counts of 1204 Manx Shearwaters and the first Common Gull of the autumn. A Spotted Flycatcher was new in the Plantation.
In a non-avian note two Speckled Woods were dancing in the under-story of the New Plantation, a decent record for this scarce island species.
