9th November

After a wild, wet and windy night it took the best part of the day for the wind to abate. Seawatching was the order of the morning but in a north-westerly little more than 9 Common Scoter, 3 Great Skuas and a Pomarine Skua passed through off the Bill. The land got little coverage and the only worthwhile reports from the Bill were of 6 settled Purple Sandpipers, a Short-eared Owl in off the sea and singles of Mallard and Golden Plover through overhead.
