The two juv/first-winter Iceland Gulls, an adult Mediterranean Gull and the drake Eider were feeding at the Patch again and good numbers of Red-throated Divers, Great Crested Grebes and auks were also seen. The regular first-winter Caspian Gull was seen at the fishing boats and at least one Great Skua was marauding up and down the beach. Two Mute Swans also arrived from the east.

A Grey Seal was seen.
