A White Stork flew over Point before heading west this morning. Unfortunately this individual was colour-ringed which showed that it was a Knepp reintroduction bird and therefore of captive origins. Other than the stork it was a fairly quiet day with just small numbers of migrants in the bushes including 25 Chiffchaffs and a Garden Warbler and six Grey Wagtails and 15 Siskins overhead.
Seawatching produced a few waders, 772 Sandwich Terns, two Little Terns and 19 Arctic Skuas.
Fourteen Porpoises and two Grey Seals were also seen feeding offshore.
