Its getting repetitive now but yet another wet and windy day making seawatching the best option. Over seven hours of watching produced a Manx Shearwater, 733 Gannets, a Black-throated Diver, 123 Little Gulls, 24 Mediterranean Gulls, two Great Skuas and 23 Arctic Skuas. The German-ringed Caspian Gull was still present along with three Yellow-legged Gulls.
Visible migration totals were dominated by 2370 Swallows along with three Rock Pipits of note. A Ring Ouzel was seen in the trapping area.
Two Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
