28th July

A day of strong winds and frequent rain. Most of the days observations where from the sea where six hours of watching produced six Balearic and two Manx Shearwaters, 816 Gannets, five Arctic Skuas, 112 Sandwich Terns, 74 Common  Terns and 11 Kittiwakes.

Eight Porpoises were feeding offshore.

A male Banded Demoiselle was seen at the south end of the Long Pits.

Of note on the RSPB Reserve was an adult Pectoral Sandpiper which gave mostly distant views from the islands in front of the Visitor's Centre and Dennis's Hide.
