A mainly sunny day with a moderate northerly breeze and the temperature rising to 15°C.
The sea-watch at the fog station produced 21 Common Scoter, 11 Sandwich Terns and more unusually a Little Ringed Plover all heading north. A single Harbour Porpoise also swam northwards. While at Bempton a single Manx Shearwater and 15 Common Scoter were offshore.
Wader interest included 4 Lapwing, a Golden Plover, 2 Little Ringed Plovers, a Whimbrel and 2 Dunlin. The Short-eared Owl continued to be seen in the Gorse Field / Old Fall area.
Single Cuckoos were seen at both Bempton and Needles Plantation. A Whinchat was seen by the lighthouse and a Grasshopper Warbler at Bempton.
