A mixed day with sunny spells, some light rain showers and a moderate north-westerly wind. It was another day dominated by large movements of Pink-footed Geese, with a minimum of 2005 birds recorded heading south; the movement took place from dawn until 1030hrs in the main, with smaller flocks until 1140hrs and none subsequently. A single Whooper Swan also over flew the outer headland. Seawatch counts included 30 Wigeon, 4 Teal, 3 Eider, 102 Red-throated Diver, a Great Northern Diver, 1 Little Gull and a Bonxie.
Two Lapland Bunting and a Corn Bunting were in the lighthouse grassland. Whilst other highlights from the land included a single Eurasian White-fronted Goose, 2 Chiffchaff, 1 Mealy Redpoll and a Water Rail. The Pied Crow remained in the village.
