Rillage Point

06.45–08.30 Signs of post-breeding passage and dispersal, with 4 Common Scoter W, single Curlew, Dunlin and Grey Wagtail and 54 Swifts (apparently migrating E in small flocks along the cliffs, but might also be a local feeding movement, though my first record since spring passage). Also the usual westward early morning movement of feeding Manx Shearwaters, with a minimum of 1,635.
