Tuesday 29th September 2015

Highlights today included a Yellow-browed Warbler briefly by the heligoland trap midday, with a second bird seen early morning between the toilet block and golf course at the other end of the site. A flock of at least five crossbills were unexpected, pausing briefly in the top of the pines just west of the Observatory building, a Redstart and Tree Pipit were also noted. On the sea there were counts of 76 Gannets, 14 Red-throated Divers, 2 Razorbills and an Arctic Skua.
