A pretty quiet day on the land although a Garden Warbler was new for the year and two Lesser Whitethroats were also seen.
Seawatching was a bit better but still fairly slow with eight hours of observation producing 11 Shovelers, two Gadwall, 20 Grey Plover, 169 Whimbrel, 45 Mediterranean Gulls, 198 Sandwich Terns and two Arctic Skuas of note.
At least ten Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore and a Pygmy Shrew was seen on the land.
