An adult Mediterranean Gull and the juvenile Glaucous Gull and first-winter Caspian Gull were feeding at the fishing boats again along with large numbers of Gannets, Great Crested Grebes, Guillemots and Razorbills offshore.
The land also proved interesting with a Hawfinch flying around the trapping area before heading north, a Bullfinch in the trapping area, two Firecrests at the Long Pits and a Grey Wagtail feeding at the settling tanks behind the seawatch hide.
