30th August

Another fairly quiet day with just a handful of migrants in the bushes and passing overhead and a trickle of birds moving through offshore. The best on offer on the land were 20 Willow Warblers, a Sedge Warbler, an early Goldcrest, four Whinchats, 16 Yellow Wagtails and a Grey Wagtail.
Nearly five hours of seawatching produced just 11 Mediterranean Gulls and five Arctic Skuas of note.

Ten Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
