A 30 knot northerly kept migration to a minimum but didn't stop it completely. Highlight was a flock of five Red Knot polarsnipe heading north -the first of the county this year. Several Red-throated Diver smålom and a small flock of Barnacle Geese hvitkinngås joined the usual Long-tailed Ducks havelle and Common Scoter svartand on the move.

A few tens (decent numbers in these reduced seabird times) of Kittiwake krykkje and a few each of Puffin lunde and Fulmar havhest also passed.

A few searches were made for the Green-winged Teal amerikakrikkand but at the time of writing nobody had connected with it today.
