There was a small arrival of migrants this morning with five Firecrests and a Pied Flycatcher of interest and this Red-backed Shrike around Southview Cottage from mid-morning of particular note.

Seawatching was pretty slow this morning with 195 Brent Geese, a Shag and just a few Arctic and Great Skuas lingering or passing through but late in the day this Caspian Gull made an appearance on the beach at the fishing boats. An adult Yellow-legged Gull was also seen.
