With no drop in wind on the horizon most attention was directed seaward. A particular highlight being a dark Pomarine Skua heading south in the evening with totals of one Red-throated Diver, 18 Fulmars, one Manx Shearwater, 17 Gannets, three Common Scoters, 12 Black-headed Gulls, one Common Gull, 92 Herring Gulls, 234 Kittiwakes, three Guillemots, and 354 Razorbills also counted.
The Bullfinch finally gave itself up at Cristin and was found to be a nice male. Elsewhere The Narrows held 57 Oystercatchers, three Purple Sandpipers, 50 Curlews, eight Redshanks, and 13 Turnstones whilst inland four Song Thrushes, two Blackcaps, three Chiffchaffs, eight Goldcrests, one Firecrest, three Coal Tits, 57 Carrion Crows, one Hooded Crow, eight Starlings, 15 Goldfinches, four Lesser Redpolls, two Reed Buntings, one Sparrowhawk, one Kestrel, and one Merlin were seen.
