24th October

A few more thrushes came in on gale-force south-easterly winds, with 129 Fieldfares, 85 Blackbirds and 56 Redwings logged. Despite the previous evening's promising signs, other passerines of interest were very thin on the ground and amounted to little more than a Whinchat, 5 Bramblings and 2 Jackdaws. A Short-eared Owl, a Merlin and a Sparrowhawk were seen on the land, and a Pomarine Skua was off the north end of the island.
