Torcross to Start Point

Plenty of Black Redstarts around eg 1 Torcross, 2 at Beesands and 3 each at both North and South Hallsands. Little else seen on the coastal path however despite most of it being well sheltered. Only single Redwing, Chiffchaff, 2 Blackcaps and around 14 Goldcrest. Got to Start Point early afternoon  and around the farm were single Redwing, 2 Chiffchaffs, Goldcrest and 4 Firecrest. Little down at the light except for another 4 Black Redstarts on nearby rocks making a day total of 13 ( lighthouse was open so disturbance kept them away from the buildings ). Single Mediterranean gull flew south ( little else on sea except c250 Gannets feeding on the Skerries ).
