The highlights of the day were two Honey Buzzards, one of which even came down in the Trapping Area for a time, before both eventually left in a northerly direction. A Mediterranean Gull was feeding at the Patch
Another significant find was the sighting of a pair of Great Black-backed Gulls with recently hatched young in the 'B' Station complex. A new breeding species for the Observatory Recording Area.
