In the continuing very windy conditions most of the days observations involved seawatching but even here it was fairly slow. Nine hours of watching eventually produced singles of Balearic and Manx Shearwater, 12 Fulmars, around 500 Gannets, four Arctic Skuas, 436 Sandwich Terns, 377 Common Terns and 11 Black Terns all moving west.
A check of the bushes produced just five Willow Warblers.
Six Porpoises and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.
