Strong southerly winds and rain today which persisted throughut the day into the evening. The weather generally made it a day to get on with office work for the most part. Despite this, there were at least three Firecrests on the island and some Merlins were putting on a show too, with two seen once again.
Wader numbers were similar to previous days: one Snipe, 34 Oystercatchers, one Whimbrel, 51 Curlews. An hour seawatch produced 73 Mediterranean Gulls, 57 Black-headed Gulls, one Common Gull, 43 Kittiwakes and 42 Razorbills.
