Most of the interest today was offshore where birds were passing throughout the day but with a noticeable increase in numbers in the evening. Eight hours of watching produced 2 Whimbrel, two Knot, nine Little Terns, 64 Arctic Terns, four Black Terns, a Great Skua, four Pomarine Skuas and 22 Arctic Skuas and a Black-throated Diver. A second-winter Yellow-legged Gull was also feeding at the fishing boats. A White Stork flew over the Point again but grounded migrants were pretty scarce.
Two Porpoises were seen offshore.
Elsewhere, two superb Black-winged Stilts were feeding in the flooded hayfields at Dengemarsh.
