A chilly start this morning with a touch of frost on the ground first thing, throughout the day it remained fairly calm and sunny.

Robin took over again as the most common bird with 20 caught at Bredmar this morning, while Goldcrest numbers tailed off slightly from recent days with only eight caught.

A jaunt to the lighthouse this afternoon produced a summer plumage Black Guillemot sat on the sea. Three immature White-tailed Eagles were up together over the obs late afternoon.

There will be two at the obs tonight: Espen and Matt.
