Notable birds today were five Mediterranean Gulls and 13 Common Scoters that were seen in small a couple of small flocks and some single individuals, mostly males. There were two Ringed Plovers and 24 Dunlins today too. during an evening dazzling session one Dunlin was seen down on Solfach with a thermal imaging camera and was then caught along with four Wheatears.

Wader numbers remained reasonably high; 11 Whimbrels, 29 Curlews, 22 Redshanks, one Green Sandpiper, three Common Sandpipers and seven Turnstones.

Other birds around include: 89 Linnets, 8 Chaffinches, three Cormorants, 261 Herring Gulls, 118 Lesser Black-backed Gulls and six Sandwich Terns.
