Migrants on the land included a Wood Lark, a few Skylarks, six Chiffchaffs, a Firecrest and the first Grey Wagtail of the spring. A visiting pair of Peregrine Falcons came into the area and were immediately chased off by the resident pair and a Marsh Harrier was hunting in the Desert. It was still very quiet offshore although a Red-necked Grebe passing east was of note along with a Red-breasted Merganser and a Great Skua moved west. The juvenile Glaucous Gull was seen off the fishing boat again and three Mediterranean Gulls were seen at the Patch.
Two Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore and a young Brown Hare was also seen.
