The highlight of another morning seawatch was a Little Egret that came in off the sea and spent the rest of the day around the Narrows. 25 Northern Fulmars passed by amongst 3000 or so Manx Shearwaters, and nine Dunlins and 11 Whimbrels were also logged from the seawatching hide. A Grey Heron arrived in the morning, and two Common Sandpipers were seen on the coast.

An Ocean Sunfish was seen very briefly in the morning, as was an unidentified large Dolphin.
