Another day of constant shearwater activity meant that recording efforts were again concentrated on seawatching. Some 10,000 Manx Shearwaters were counted off the west coast, with four Balearic Shearwaters and a single Sooty Shearwater also joining the whirling throngs of birds feeding on the water. A Greenshank made a typically transient visit to the Narrows and a Snipe was lurking in the damp lowlands, but landbirds remained in short supply with little worth reporting other than a Grey Wagtail and a single Sand Martin.

There was no repeat of the cetacean extravaganza of the previous day, but two Risso’s Dolphins did make a brief appearance in the afternoon.
