W F4, 17degC, 50km, 8/8, QNH 1018 rising
1900 - 2000hr
Rain storm now ceased but few gulls remaining and nothing else arriving.... the most interesting feature of the evening was the almost total lack of mips moving west which seemed to have become a normal feature of the 1900 - 2000hr time slot over the past week... only a single mip was seen going west and most unusually for this time, non on the deck.... especially interesting after last evenings considerable flow.
Moving birds:
Wheatear 1
LBB Gull 126
BH Gull 30
Curlew 3
Common Gull 2
Oystercatcher 2
Mipit 1
Goosander 1
