With favourable easterly winds, hopes were high for some form of migration to take place. Things started well with three Lesser Redpolls trapped and ringed on the first net round. More unusual birds on the site included a Nuthatch, a very rare bird on the reserve, at least three Great Spotted Woodpeckers, eight Mistle Thrushes and two Stonechat. Birds on the sea included counts of c1500 Common Scoter, 40 Red-throated Divers, 36 Gannets and 5 Sandwich Terns.
