Most of the days interest was offshore. Nearly five hours of watching (mostly from first light) produced 18 Shelduck, two Velvet Scoters, an Eider, six Red-breasted Mergansers, 11 Great Skuas, three Sandwich Terns and seven Mediterranean Gulls while passerines coming in included two Skylarks, 3220 Starlings and 193 Chaffinches. A Bullfinch was seen in the trapping area and a Grey Wagtail also flew over.
