Gannets were up to 50 today and 7 Manx Shearwaters were also seen. There was a steady movement of Swifts totaling 52 passed mostly in small numbers apart from a group of 14.
A female or juvenile Eider was off the north end. Slowly increasing numbers of waders are a sign of the autumn, Oystercatchers have increased to 220 and Whimbrel to 3.
The first 2 Meadow Brown butterflies of the year were noted today.
