Today the wind picked up from the west and some light rain in the morning gave a different feel to the day.

A seawatch in the morning produced a few good birds, Manx Shearwaters numbered almost 500 per hour and along with them there were 16 Kittiwake, five of which were juveniles, 5 Sandwich Terns, a single Common Tern and two Golden Plover, the first two of the autumn.

Elsewhere the mountain held two Kestrels and a Buzzard, the first juvenile Dunlin was seen on solfach with eight Redshank and 48 Rock Pipits. Warblers numbered five Sedge, five Common Whitethroat, nine Chiffchaff and 18 Willow Warblers.
