A mixed day for weather with a brisk southerly wind and some rain, fog and sun during the day. The highlight of the day was a brief female-type Black Redstart seen in the fields below the School House. Elsewhere, a Redwing was in the Withies and the Heligoland Trap produced three Chaffinches, a Willow Warbler and a Blackcap.
