Highlights of a modest seawatch comprised of a Manx Shearwater, two Whimbrel, two dark morph Arctic Skuas, 34 Common Scoters and five Sand Martins. A Cuckoo seen near the Long Pits was likely preparing to depart our shores. Two Mediterranean Gulls fed at the Patch.

A Clouded Yellow was noted at the south end of the Trapping Area.

Offshore, a Grey Seal and a Harbour Porpoise were logged.
