Big numbers of gulls at the Patch included the regular Glaucous Gull, two adult Yellow-legged Gulls, two Little Gulls and at least four Mediterranean Gulls and 129 Brent Geese, three Shovelers and 198 Kittiwakes flew east. 
On the land, a Bewick's Swan flying over the trapping area was an unusual record whilst a Woodcock and two Snipe were also of note.
