Very quiet. The Great Skua and Little Gull were feeding offshore again and one of the regular first-winter Caspian Gulls was at the Fish Hut with an additional second-winter bird at the Patch. A Mediterranean Gull was also feeding at the Patch.

A Grey Seal was seen offshore.

The Ring-necked Duck and Stejneger's Stonechat were both on their regular stations.
