A cloudy day with persistent rain and a moderate north easterly wind. The morning sea watch was conducted from South Landing where single Long-tailed Duck and Great Northern Diver both flew north. Other highlights included 9 Eider, 20 Common Scoter, 12 Red-throated Diver, a second calendar year Mediterranean Gull and two Sandwich Tern, the latter representing the first record for the year.
On the land, there was an arrival of chiffchaff, with 12 across the headland. A male Brambling was briefly at the feeding station at the Living Seas Center, whilst a single Nuthatch remained on feeders at South Dykes. A pair of Tufted Duck were at Thornwick fishing pond and later North Marsh.
