The highlight of the days seawatching was a Long-tailed Duck which flew east close inshore and into the bay. Three Mediterranean Gulls and good numbers of Gannets were present and 70 Common Scoter flew west.

The Ring-necked Duck, Cattle Egret, Great White Egrets and Long-eared Owl continue to attract plenty of admirers to the RSPB Reserve where five Caspian Gulls were seen during the day and including a new green colour-ringed adult.
