Very few birds on the land but they did include a fine male Pied Flycatcher in the gorse between the Observatory and Old Lighthouse, a male Redstart behind the Patch hide and a male "Greenland" Wheatear,
The first-winter Iceland Gull and three Mediterranean Gulls and 25 Common Terns were feeding at the Patch. Two Arctic Skuas and two Great Skuas passed through.
