Over 11 hours of seawatching produced 25 Teal, four Red-breasted Mergansers, two Manx Shearwaters, two Grey Herons, four Grey Plovers, 159 Whimbrel, 709 Bar-tailed Godwits, a Wood Sandpiper, 33 Little Gulls, six Mediterranean Gulls, three Great Skuas and ten Arctic Skuas. Other birds of interest included three Sand Martins, three Yellow Wagtails and two Siskins.
