A fine day but with with very little to report. The Black Redstart was seen around the Lifeboat Station again and five Stonechat and 12 Reed Buntings were found. Very little moving offshore with just two Greylag Geese, 13 Wigeon and four Mediterranean Gulls of interest.

A Brown Hare was seen in the Desert and a Porpoise was feeding offshore.
