However, we would request that you continue to observe safe practises and sanitiser and spray will continue to be provided to clean down the handles and closures in the hide after you have used it.

Another day with nearly all of the interest offshore. Eleven hours of seawatching produced a Black-throated Diver, a Great Northern Diver, four Manx Shearwaters, 22 Mediterranean Gulls,  27 Great Skuas, four Pomarine Skuas and 22 Arctic Skuas and two Black Terns of note although overall numbers of waders and terns were generally low.
A Ring Ouzel was the only bird of note on the land.

Ten Porpoises were feeding offshore.

The moth traps produced a Pine Beauty - only the second Observatory record.
