No matter how much effort we put in today the elusive Yellow-browed Warbler never showed, probably due to the howling gale and thrashing rain. Other than a pair of Brent Geese heading west and 15 Golden Plovers overhead, variety was mostly confined to those migrants who didn't leave before the onslaught of the weather. A small flock of 12 House Martins marked the beginning of the end of the Hirundine movement for the year.
