8th Aug

There was a large arrival of migrants but almost all of the birds were around the northern Long Pits. Willow Warblers were the most abundant with 80 birds along with small numbers of Whitethroats, Lesser Whitethroats and two Garden Warblers. A Tree Pipit flew over the Observatory. The sea was very quiet.

Singles of Porpoise and Grey Seal were seen offshore.
