Very little offshore passage with just 28 Teal and eight Mediterranean Gulls and two first-winter Caspian Gulls at the fishing boats. The Patch continues to be active with 20 Little Gulls, another Mediterranean Gull, an adult Mediterranean x Black-headed Gull hybrid and an Arctic Tern feeding there.

A handful of birds on the land included two Fieldfares, six Redwings and three Song Thrushes.

Three Grey Seals and a Common Seal were feeding offshore.
