A sprinkling of new migrants today, along with a few birds that have been here for a while. Apart from the Cetti's warblers , some of which have been here since October, a second year female firecrest has been undetected here for a week, leaving the local observers doubting their birding skills. 2 Lesser whitethroats, 2 willow warblers and a male blackbird were fresh in. Out to sea the highlights were a pair of fulmars and a handful of waders passing. 3 swallows flew south, still low numbers of this species this year.

Although the larvae get recorded, the Mullein moth is only rarely seen here. 

Birds Ringed: Blackbird 2, Blackcap 1, Lesser Whitethroat 2, Linnet 1, Willow Warbler 2.
