Although generally a quieter day on the bird front, there was still a fair scattering of migrants. A Balearic Shearwater flew past at sea in the morning, whilst a good number of waders at high tide saw 69 Turnstones, 25 Purple Sandpipers, two Sanderlings, four Dunlins and a Knot. In terms of land migrants, 86 Willow Warblers were seen predominantly on the South end, whilst only a single Pied and Spotted Flycatcher were seen in the gardens.
