Overnight gale with gusts to Force 9. Once upon a time we thought gusting Force 8 was exceptional but over the last couple of years winds gusting Force 9 are becoming much more frequent in occurrence. Rain held off to mid-day. Southbound 26 Red-throated Diver, 7 Common Gull, 2 Med Gull, Brent, Heron, & Velvet Scoter with northbound 17 Common Scoter & 5 Red-throats plus 9 Common Scoter & 3 Kitts offshore.  A Redpoll was flying around in the half light first thing with other passerines still on the move southbound being 4 Mipit, Chaffinch & Yellowhammer.
