The sea was very quiet with a 2.75hr watch this morning producing just 37 Whimbrel, 60 Bar-tailed Godwits, a Little Tern and three Mediterranean Gulls of note whilst the Iceland Gull remained at the Patch. It was even quieter in the afternoon when a 45 minute watch produced just one Gannet.
Four Porpoise were seen.
