A shape fluttering leaf-like against the lower promenade wall as I walked by, turned out to be a Firecrest – very confused and perhaps tired – it was very tame and flew down under the beach steps but then managed to fly weakly over the shingle towards one of the wooden groynes. Very misty at sea with a south breeze at the time and some light rain and I suspect the bird had just flown in.

West Hill 08.30
