The weather of April continued into May and even with some hail showers in the afternoon. After a quiet morning on the sea the trend of the last few days continued with another big afternoon movement. Of note were the terns again with 3129 Common Terns, 2415 Arctic Terns and 7132 "commic" Terns, nine Little Terns and two Black Terns. Skuas also featured highly with 21 Greats, three Pomarines and 11 Arctic Skuas and other notables included two Black-throated Divers, a Great Northern Diver, a Manx Shearwater and five Little Gulls. The Iceland Gull was still feeding at the Patch.
Three Hobbies, a Pied Flycatcher at the Long Pits and two Yellow Wagtails were the highlights of the few migrants on the land. The nesting Ravens have fledged four young.
A Grey Seal and 16 Porpoises were feeding offshore.
