The cold north-westerly winds seemed to have put a hold on all thoughts of migrants arriving. The patch was virtually birdless to day, although I did see two very distant divers, probably Red-throats and a Common Guillemot during a short seas watch.
In the garden there seems to be an increase in the number of finches feeding, although the Brambling has failed to reappear.
Goldfinches seem particularly numerous at the moment. Their cheerful singing brought a bit of cheer to the garden in between some very heavy showers.
