19th Aug

In breezy conditions most of the interest was offshore where there was a steady stream of Sandwich and Common Terns passing west all day and also two Balearic Shearwaters, two Great Skuas and eight Black Terns through. Arctic Skuas were loitering with intent throughout the day. The juvenile Caspian Gull (or a hybrid) and a first-year Yellow-legged Gull were among the gulls at the fishing boats and a Little Ringed Plover also made a brief stop there.
It was fairly quiet on the land with just a few Willow Warblers and a Tree Pipit to be seen.

Five Porpoises and a Grey Seal were seen offshore.
