Despite large numbers of gulls at the Patch nothing of note could be found among them and seawatching produced just a few Red-throated Divers and auks as usual at the moment.
One Chiffchaff was seen at the Long Pits and a Grey Wagtail around the Power Station Sewage Unit was an unusual record.

A Grey Seal was hauled out on the beach but appeared to be sick.
