Heavy rain overnight and again from mid-afternoon. A very small arrival of migrants on the land with a Spotted Flycatcher and two Tree Pipits trapped of note whilst a Honey Buzzard flew east and out to sea.
An Arctic Skua flew east offshore and a Hobby came in. The first-summer Iceland Gull was still feeding at the Patch along with two first-summer Mediterranean Gulls.
