A very cold morning with heavy frost and clear skies resulted in another day with very little passage. On the land, a Hobby and two House Martins were new for the year and the seven Ring Ouzels were still on the east side of the Long Pits.Three Yellow Wagtails, a Tree Pipit and five Siskins also flew over.
The sea was almost devoid of any movement other than a Great Skua and three Mediterranean Gulls. The Iceland Gull was still at the Patch and two Arctic Terns made a brief visit.
Offshore, the Grey Seal killed and devoured another Porpoise calf and six living Porpoise were also seen.
One Grizzled Skipper was seen.
