A relatively bright day with prolonged sunny spells until mid-afternoon, but despite light winds, temperatures only reached a mere two degress C by mid-day. During the seawatch, 17 Red-throated Divers and a Great Northern Diver flew south, with 152 Fulmars and 93 Gannets heading in the opposite direction.
The Bittern was again seen at dusk at Thornwick Pools. A Woodcock frequented Greenacres, 14 Ringed Plovers and two Purple Sandpipers were located on South Landing beach, whilst the Short-eared Owl continued its stay near the Lighthouse. Passerine interest included two Nuthatch in South Dykes and four Song Thrush on the outer head.
The Black Redstart continued its stray at RSPB Bempton Cliffs and sightings from Buckton included a Water Rail and 200 Corn Buntings.
