At long last there was a small arrival on the land with 25 Chiffchaffs, seven Goldcrests and our first (but very late) Wheatear of the spring. Two Egyptian Geese flew over the area and a Red-legged Partridge was also seen.

There was also a bit of interest offshore with 780 Brent Geese, six Teal, a Great Northern Diver, three Knot and 93 Sandwich Terns

A total of 19 Porpoise were counted this morning.

A Peacock butterfly was also seen.
