A very quiet hour from the fishing boats produced little of interest. A few Common Scoter east were joined by several Red-throated Divers but it was hard going.

The first-winter Caspian Gull was also noted in the gull roost.

A Grey Seal was seen offshore.

On the RSPB Reserve the drake Ring-necked Duck and the Cattle Egret were still present at Boulderwall farm. 14 Bewick's Swans roosted on ARC Pit and two Avocet were also noted.
