After the excitement of the previous day, very little of interest was noted during the morning census. A Grey Heron flying over the South End was the only unusual bird seen, and Common Whitethroat and a Blackcap remained.

A pleasant day provided an opportunity for a ringing expedition to the seabird colonies, and the afternoon was spent ringing Herring and Lesser Black-backed Gull chicks, Razorbills and one or two Common Guillemots and Black-legged Kittiwakes.
