Very quiet again. A Swift, five Lesser Whitethroats and 25 Yellow Wagtails were of interest on/over the land. Seawatches were also slow going with three hours producing just 13 Whimbrel, four Curlew, 292 Sandwich Terns, two Arctic Skuas and a Balearic Shearwater of note.
Twelve Porpoises and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.
This unusual aberrant Small Copper was also found in the Trapping Area. It is probably the named aberration brunnescens.
