A windy day meant that most of the coverage was concentrated on the sea where several hours of watching produced 73 Common Scoters, an Eider, a Sooty Shearwater, good numbers of Gannets and Sandwich Terns, 32 Arctic Skuas, four Great Skuas, a Black Tern and four Arctic Terns. Four Yellow-legged Gulls and a Mediterranean Gull were attracted to the food offered this afternoon.
Five Porpoises were seen with an additional dead individual floating by attached to a fishing float. A Grey Seal and a Brown Hare were also seen.
A Hummingbird Hawk-moth was seen.
