A breezy day made observations on the land difficult but resulted in a few birds moving offshore with a Black-throated Diver, 487 Gannets, three Pomarine Skuas and five Great Skuas of note. A Merlin also came in. The first-summer Iceland Gull and two Mediterranean Gulls were feeding at the Patch.
Three Porpoises were seen offshore.
A few butterflies were seen including six Grizzled Skippers, a Brown Argus and five Painted Ladies.
