A light NW , overcast conditions, clearing to sunshine by 8am and some migration. The Snow Bunting was still present although had moved up to the track closer to reach road. Highlights were 3 Ring Ouzel, a late Wheatear,a single Fieldfare, 3 Swallow, c100 Chaffinch, 2 Brambling, c10 Siskin, c500 Woodpigeon all West, a Small Flock of c10 Tree Sparrow flew towards farm, 5 Reed Bunting, c60 Corn Bunting c 30 Yellowhammer.

A lunch time stroll down the sea front looking for Auks or divers etc in the harbour was highlighted by a 1st winter little Gull that flew past me and out to the deep harbour before i could get a decent pic.

I had another look before dusk but the c1,500 roosting gulls were mainly Black headed with many Mediterranean and a few Kittiwake, and nothing else of note.
