Friday 20th October

 A day of easterly gales and heavy rain. Difficult conditions for birding but a few were out and about. A long seawatch at Long Nab was less fruitful than hoped, highlights were Pomarine and 10 Arctic Skuas, 45 Little Gulls and a Velvet Scoter past. The Great Crested Grebe was still in the harbour. Little Grebe, 44 Wigeon Johnson's Marsh. The sheltered south side of Castle Hill held 30 Blackbirds, 5 Song Thrushes and 5 Redwing.  25 Blackbirds, 5 Brambling along South Cliff. 

Heavy seas today! - Phil Bennett
