The wind direction changed markedly overnight but with it came clear skies. Perhaps too clear to have encouraged any night migrants to stop on the headland. Generally things felt fairly quiet on the passerine front. My efforts were rewarded by 3, widely scattered, sightings of male Redstarts, which probably consisted of just two mobile birds. A poor supporting cast of 3 Chiffchaff were in the Belle Tout area, whilst 2 Swallow flew through.

The wind did provide interest for those looking at the sea with a passage of Sandwich Tern in excess of 300 birds, accompanied by other usual suspects for the time of year.
