Another gloomy day with increasingly strong winds and then rain limited any serious observations to the sea where there were thousands of gulls again. Birds passing west included a new first-winter Caspian Gull and seven Mediterranean Gulls along with a Red-breasted Merganser and 13 Fulmars whilst a new third-winter Caspian Gull came into the "puddles" on the beach in the afternoon. The regular first-winter Caspian and Glaucous Gulls were still present and showing well.
A Grey Seal and a Porpoise were also seen.
