A Great Skua was feeding offshore while 100 Brent Geese and two Red-breasted Mergansers flew up-channel and a drake Eider was seen at the Patch. One of the semi-regular first-winter Caspian Gulls was at the Fish Hut again.

The Stejneger's Stonechat was still at Kerton Road and the Ring-necked Duck was back on Cooke's Pool at Boulderwall.
