Several nice records today, especially for a north westerly breeze. A Black-throated Diver was the best bird of the day, also on the sea was a late adult Gannet flying south west, a Razorbill, a Guillemot and 15 Great-crested Grebes. Land birds on or over the island included 3 Goldcrests,2 Redwing, a Greenfinch, 200 Starlings flying west and a Golden Plover also flying west after the tide. Eleven Purple sandpipers are still present, also counted were 60 Ringed Plovers and 45 Bar-tailed Godwits in flight while 3 Pintail represented the ducks.
