There was a small arrival of migrants this morning, mostly centred around the moat, with 40 Willow Warblers and a Spotted Flycatcher of note while two Tree Pipits and 15 Yellow Wagtails passed overhead.
Offshore, there was a big westerly movement of Sandwich Terns with over 1700 counted along with six Arctic Skuas. A Black Tern was feeding at the Patch and four Yellow-legged Gulls came to the bread offerings at the fishing boats.
A Grey Seal and two Porpoises were feeding offshore.
