A day of quality rather than quantity with a Yellow-browed Warbler seen briefly the Moat and two Dartford Warblers in the area followed by a superb juvenile Sabine's Gull and a first-winter Caspian Gull offshore at the fishing boats and two Sooty Shearwaters moving west. Goldfinches dominated overhead passage with 1420 seen along with 59 Skylarks, two Sand Martins, 250 Swallows, 410 Starlings and 15 Siskins.

Two Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
The highlight from the moth traps were two Chestnuts and a Scarce Bordered Straw.
