7th November 2017

The wind was SE 2 on the walk over with visibility of 5 mls, upon arrival on the island the wind switched to the west, the rain started and visibility dropped to 1 mile.
It was a strange dawn below  the low raincloud and the glow reflected on the rocks below the observatory.
Starlings were moving despite the weather and over 600  (in 1 hour) were seen to come out of the estuary in small groups and travel north down the islands.
The only other birds noted were 8 Eider and a Purple Sandpiper on the north end and 3 Song Thrush, a Blackbird and Chaffinch in the gardens.
