A handful of migrants on the land included two Chiffchaffs, the first Firecrest of the year and a Song Thrush. Seawatching was fairly slow with 149 Brent Geese, three Shelduck, 184 Kittiwakes and a Little Gull of interest along with one of the regular Iceland Gulls.

Three Porpoises were feeding offshore.
