A subtle change in the weather, with a light westerly and at times, a heavy overcast with occasional showers. The seawatch produced 113 Fulmars and 57 Manx Shearwaters flying north, a Little Egret and 22 Dunlin flying south, a single Black-tailed Godwit moving north and 123 Redshank going south. A total of five Arctic Skuas went north, as did four Bonxies and a juvenile Mediterreanean Gull. A juvenile Yellow-legged Gull headed south, whilst 224 Sandwich Terns flew north.
Three Yellow Wagtails overflew the Fog Station, with another on Thornwick Pool. The Wigeon remained at the latter location, together with six Snipe, two Dunlin and a juvenile Cuckoo.
