Lots of nice sunshine was comprehensively spoilt by a blasting westerly today. A steady trickle of Meadow Pipits and alba wagtails continued to battle in off the sea but little more than a handful of 'crests and Chiffchaffs were evident in what few sheltered spots there were on the ground. Odds and ends from the sea included 5 Manx Shearwaters and a Red-throated Diver through off the Bill.

The first Comma of the year was on the wing at Church Ope Cove and a lone Dark Sword Grass was caught overnight at the Obs.
