Sunday 9th October 2016

With patchy showers passing throughout the day, migration was rather slower today with 67 birds ringed including 4 Bearded Tits and 37 Goldcrests. Robins were noticeably fewer but many remained around the Observatory and a female Brambling was also present. At sea 250 Common Scoters, 63 Gannets, a Great Skua and a Spoonbill passing offshore were all of interest, 3 Swallows were still lingering, as was a Reed Warbler, and a Ring Ouzel was seen briefly.

A Humming-bird Hawk Moth was on the buddleia.
