The most productive spell of observation so far this year (0650-0750 & 1200-1300) were led by a summer plumaged Black Guillemot along with 341 Sandwich Tern, 143 Common Scoter, 116 Gannet, 93 Guillemot, 55 Kittiwake, 34 Red-throated Diver, 22 Razorbill, 6 Manx Shearwater, 5 Fulmar, 5 Red-breasted Merganser and an Arctic Skua.
Diurnal Migration
A few Swallow moved through.
Grounded Migrants
Again little on offer with just 7 White Wagtail, 4 Willow Warbler and a single Wheatear.
Wildfowl and Waders
The Brent Goose flock held 110 pale-bellied birds and waders included 3 Black-tailed Godwit.
At least 3 Little Egret was the best of the rest.
