The new month was sworn in by a westward flurry of Manx Shearwaters, 31 in all, while 693 Gannets and the first returning Whimbrel also proceeded down the Channel. An Arctic Skua flew east in the morning and another spent some time harassing terns later in the day. 69 Common Swifts flew out to sea during the afternoon.
A Grey Seal and a minimum of three Harbour Porpoises were at sea.
Scotney's Spoonbill remained on the causeway between the eastern pits.
