A scattering of migrants were seen across the recording area including 25 Chiffchaffs, four Wheatears, two Black Redstarts, three Ravens, three Siskins, a Rock Pipit, a Swallow and a single Brambling.

Seawatching today produced 57 Sandwich Tern, 651 Brent Geese, five Wigeon, six Red-breasted Merganser and a Teal.
