A fierce easterly wind which backed and strengthened through the day brought a decent arrival of Firecrests with at least 23 being found along with eight Chiffchaffs, six Wheatears and a male Black Redstart in the Desert.
There was very little sea passage except for an early morning rush of Sandwich Terns along with a Little Gull and two Mediterranean Gulls whilst the two Iceland Gulls, a first-winter Caspian Gull and another Mediterranean Gull were feeding at the Patch.
Four Porpoises were also seen.
