Seawatching produced some decent totals including 713 Gannets, 38 Mediterranean Gulls, five Great Skuas and 20 Arctic Skuas.
Two Marsh Harriers, 46 Sand Martins, 360 Swallows and seven Grey Wagtails flew over and 28 Chiffchaffs, three Firecrests, five Goldcrests and five Wheatears were seen on the land.

Three Porpoises, a Common Seal and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore and a Brown Hare was seen in the Desert.

An evening search produced plenty of Tree Crickets but no Sickle-bearing Bush-crickets were found.
