7th November

A something of nothing day with sea interest dwindling as the still very strong wind shifted into the west. Although there were odds and ends on the land, including 3 Black Redstarts and 2 Wheatears at the Bill, most attention was given to the sea with watches at the Bill coming up with 20 Common Scoter, 2 each of Red-throated Diver, Great Skua and Arctic Skua, and singles of Sooty Shearwater and Pomarine Skua, whilst 3 Little Gulls, 2 Black-throated Divers, a Red-throated Diver and a Great Skua passed through/lingered off Chesil Cove.
