A still warm day with the majority of the interest being restricted to the sea. An afternoon seawatch produced a single Common Scoter, two Mediterranean Gulls heading east and a few Common Terns and Sandwich Terns feeding off the point.
Sand Martins have started to move with c.250 heading south across the Channel and a further c.250 roosting on the shingle ridges and telegraph lines. Twelve Yellow Wagtails and two Whimbrels were also recorded throughout the day.
Four Porpoise and two Grey Seal were also seen from the fishing boats.
