A cold, clear morning and frequent heavy rain in the afternoon and evening. Migrants remain scarce but did include the first Cuckoo, Hobby and Garden Warbler of the spring and a Pied Flycatcher at the Long Pits. One more unusual sighting was that of an Alexandrine Parakeet which was seen several times during the day. Very quiet offshore with just three Eider, four Little Terns and an Arctic Skua of note.
