A day of very strong winds from the West saw a small passage of birds out to sea, although nothing rare or scarce passed by. The totals of the more noteworthy species included a Red-throated Diver, five Grey Plovers, three Arctic Skuas, three Great Skuas, 13 Mediterranean Gulls, three Little Gulls and an Arctic Tern.
