A handful of migrants dropped in during the day including two Firecrests, three Chiffchaffs and two Black Redstarts and the Wood Lark was seen again near the Old School House.
It was quiet for passage offshore but still plenty of gulls present with the highlight being the second calendar year Glaucous Gull again. Three Caspian Gulls and six Mediterranean Gulls were also seen.
