Fairly quiet with seawatching producing a Mediterranean Gull, two Little Terns, three Black Terns and three Arctic Skuas of note. Three Crossbills were seen in the Trapping Area and 40 Yellow Wagtails flew over.
The highlight of the day though was a Monarch butterfly which spent a few minutes in the Moat in the morning. Two Holly Blues were also seen.
