The Yellow-browed Warbler was still in and around the Lighthouse Garden but proved very elusive in the wet and windy conditions. The main interest was offshore though where 4.5 hrs of watching produced four Sooty Shearwaters, two Balearic Shearwaters, a Manx Shearwater, around 3000 Gannets, 16 Arctic Skuas, six Great Skuas, 23 Razorbills, two Mediterranean Gulls and an adult Yellow-legged Gull.

A Grey Seal, a Common Seal and two Porpoises were also seen offshore.
