Similar to the previous day in terms of birds, the Northern Lapwing, Whimbrel, and Redpoll all remained while 29 Eurasian Curlews, ten Black-headed Gulls, 24 Common Swifts, and a single Sandwich Tern were also counted. A Dunlin and three Sand Martins were new arrivals.
Undoubtedly the best find of the day was at least eight Thrift Clearwing moths on the South End – the first sighting of this fairly scarce species for over a decade.
