About the only migrants on the land were four Willow Warblers and a Yellow Wagtail. The Pheasant was also heard again.
Seven hours of seawatching during the day produced two Garganey, two Black-throated Divers, six Grey Plover, 34 Sanderling, 26 Whimbrel, 13 Arctic Skuas, five Pomarine Skuas and 45 Little Terns of note. A first-summer Glaucous Gull was also feeding around the Point. The most remarkable sightings of the day though were two flocks of Black-tailed Godwits totaling 170 birds which flew west this morning.
