An extremely warm and windless start to the day, although with very few notable birds.
A few small mixed flocks of Swallows and Sand Martins were the only obvious migrants moving south.
On the sea, eight Common Scoter flew west and two Gannets slowly drifted east. The Patch was largely empty of gulls and terns this afternoon while the beach was largely filled with fishermen.
A single Grey Seal was seen up near the Lifeboat Station.
Elsewhere, a Wood Sandpiper was present on ARC pit this evening.
