A mostly sunny day, but strong wind kept most of the birds down. As is often the case in summer, most interest was out to sea, where 1733 Manx Shearwaters, 67 Gannets, 21 Puffins and 19 Fulmars (including one "dark-looking" bird) were seen. Meanwhile on the Narrows there were three Whimbrels and the Bar-tailed Godwit for it's fourth day.
The only other new arrivals were a Collared Dove at the Plantation, and singles of Swift and Starling heading North through the island. Overall, a pretty quiet day!
