Almost all the interest was at the shore again where two Red-breasted Mergansers, two Sooty Shearwaters, a Shag, 12 Little Gulls, 15 Mediterranean Gulls, a Puffin and an Arctic Tern were of note along with the Grey Phalarope. The hybrid Mediterranean x Black-headed Gull was also seen again. Other migrants on the land included four Swallows, three Chiffchaffs, 1050 Starlings, 170 Goldfinches and seven Siskins.
