  1. Autumn migrants meet last of summer visitors, most taking the 'scenic' (coastal) route, from headland to headland. Mostly birds of passage then, though many of these species will winter. Hen Harrier an exceptional find, have only heard of one there before. Gribben much underwatched due to 'difficult' terrain. Well done John and Mark !
