A bright and sunny morning resulted in a bit of movement overhead and offshore but very little in the way of ground migrants.
Of note among the migrants flying over were a Wood Lark, 17 Sky Larks, 70 Swallows, three Tree Sparrows, two Grey Wagtails, two Rock Pipits, two Bramblings, 30 Lesser Redpolls, 345 Goldfinches, 25 Siskins and 16 Reed Buntings.  
Offshore, another 1100 Gannets moved west along with two Shags, two Great Skuas and 35 Mediterranean Gulls and with a further five gulls on the beach. 

Three Porpoises and a Grey Seal were seen offshore.

Six Clouded Yellows were noted during the day.
