A fairly quiet day. Very little in the way of new arrivals in the bushes and not a great deal passing offshore with just a Great Northern Diver, two Arctic Skuas, three Great Skuas and a Little Tern of note being seen. At least five Mediterranean Gulls and the first-winter Iceland Gull was feeding at the Patch. A visiting male Peregrine Falcon was quickly evicted from the area by the resident male. A new rubicola male Stonechat was seen in the moat.
At least five Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
