Although numbers were not high there was a decent variety of migrants passing overhead which included 500 Swallows, two Grey Wagtails, 40 Pied Wagtails, seven Rock Pipits, a Brambling, 40 Redpolls, 150 Goldfinch and 25 Siskins. A Yellow Wagtail also dropped in and was caught in the Crow Trap.

It was very quite for grounded migrants though with just 15 Chiffchaffs and six Blackcaps of note along with a Dartford Warbler seen near the Britannia Inn.
Two Mediterranean Gulls, a Great Skua and five Arctic Skuas were the best the sea could offer.
Three Porpoises and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.
Thirty Mottled Shieldbugs were found.
