29th October

Apart from an unknown observer reporting to the news services a streak of hot seawatching (Great Shearwaters, Sooty Shearwaters and Little Gulls) off the Bill during the afternoon that escaped the attention of other watchers, today's continuing wind and heavy showers did us precious little good: singles of Redwing, Ring Ouzel, Firecrest, Siskin and Reed Bunting were uncovered on the land and 2 Balearic Shearwaters and singles of Manx Shearwater, Sooty Shearwater and Arctic Tern passed by off the Bill.
