Another beautiful day saw slightly fewer migrants flying overhead, although a good scattering of scarcities was recorded. Highlights from the day included a smart male Hen Harrier (second for the year), a Stock Dove, a Short-eared Owl, a Black Redstart, two Mistle Thrushes, the Red-breasted Flycatcher, two House Sparrows, two Bullfinches, a Lapland Bunting and a Snow Bunting. 21 Mediterranean Gulls and five Common Scoters passed by at sea with over five hundred each of Black-headed Gulls and Kittiwakes in the morning, whilst a Lapwing and a Knot were seen around the Narrows. A slight passage of corvids in the morning comprised of 247 Jackdaws, a Rook, 13 Carrion Crows, a Hooded Crow and 34 Ravens.
