More of the same on the land with just a scattering of commoner migrants about including 20 Willow Warblers, two Sedge Warblers and a Garden Warbler. A male Marsh Harrier, two Tree Pipits and 20 Yellow Wagtails passed overhead.
Offshore, the almost constant westerly passage of terns in recent days continued with five hours of observations producing an excellent 2265 Sandwich Terns, 336 Common Terns, four Arctic Terns, two Little Terns and seven Black Terns. Three Great Skuas and a few Arctic Skuas were also seen and an additional three Black Terns were feeding  at the Patch. 

Four Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
