The weather consisted of moderate north-north-easterly winds, overcast skies and occasional showers, often of a wintry nature. During the seawatch, a Pink-footed Goose, two Velvet Scoters and 66 Kittiwakes flew north; the latter a relatively good tally for the time of year.
Thornwick Pools attracted 46 Teal, a Water Rail, the first returning Coot after the breeding season, and one Jack Snipe. A ringing session on South Landing beach was rewarded with four Rock Pipits.
