26th October

A very unrewarding day spoilt by a constant nagging southwesterly that looked to have done no favours on land or sea. A likely Great Shearwater through off Chesil Cove would have been a nice highlight but it escaped being clinched; a Great Skua through there and 2 each of Sooty Shearwater and Velvet Scoter  through off the Bill were the only other notables from the sea. The Wryneck and a Firecrest remained at the Bill but new arrivals there were almost non-existent.
