A cold and wet day with only the sea seriously looked at. The highlights were two juvenile/first-winter Iceland Gulls which arrived at the Patch in the late morning and remained there for the rest of the day. A first-winter Pomarine Skua was also seen on several occasions during the day. A Great Skua and three Mediterranean Gulls were also noted and the drake Eider was offshore again..
A Porpoise was seen.
