An excellent day of seawatching didn't really kick off until mid-afternoon, when the first scarcities began flying past the south end. Seven Sooty Shearwaters, six Balearic Shearwaters, two Leach's Petrels (first of the year), five Pomarine Skuas, 14 Arctic Skuas, a Long-tailed Skua, 17 Great Skuas and a Sabine's Gull. Passerine-migrants were few and far between, although a movement of Swallows off the North end saw 135 birds passing with 25 House Martins and three Grey Wagtails. The Melodious Warbler remained in Cristin garden.
