Very quiet on the land with just a Short-eared Owl in the Desert, six Swallows passing through and the long-staying Ring Ouzel in the moat of any note.
However, the sea provided the surprise of the day with at least 892 Mediterranean Gulls feeding offshore and passing west along with 796 Kittwakes and 31 Sandwich Terns. An Arctic Skua was also present.
Two Porpoises, a Common Seal and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
