22nd October

A fresh arrival of birds today but conditions were far from helpful. Most notable increases were woodcock with 45, and blackbird with 472, whilst other thrushes consisted 2 ring ouzel, 670 fieldfare, 29 song thrush and 990 redwing. Small migrants were still in short supply with a blackcap and yellow-browed warbler along the west dyke, the dunnock at Holland, 10 robin and a meally redpoll. As always with strong winds gull flocks scattered across the island included 1630 herring gulls and 504 great black-backed gulls.
