The early morning seemed very quiet but plenty of looking around the Point eventually produced a Grey Plover, a Greenshank, two Hobbies, two Garden Warblers and eight Corn Buntings of note.
However, there was a surprisingly good seawatch from mid-morning which produced a Shag, seven Pomarine Skuas and 87 Black Terns along with 180 Common Scoter, 69 Sanderling, a Redshank, 17 Mediterranean Gulls and over 2200 "Commic" Terns. A Red-breasted Merganser also flew west.
At least 40 Porpoises were feeding offshore with a Grey Seal in close attendance but was not seen to get too involved with them.
