It was a pleasant day of light winds, warm temperatures and patchy cloud cover, with frequent sunny periods giving a very hot feel at times. In terms of birdlife, a single Fulmar, 790 Manx Shearwaters, 14 Gannets, 14 Common Scoters and eight Black-headed Gulls made their way south past the coast during the day. Singles of Redshank, Whimbrel and Common Sandpiper were present around The Narrows, and a single Kestrel inland was a slightly different sighting. Six Willow Warblers and a Lesser Redpoll represented passerine migrants inland.
