It was a relatively bright day, with a moderate south-easterly wind and peak temperature of 16 degrees C. Seawatch highlights included a Whimbrel, 42 Sandwich Terns , two Red-throated Divers and two Manx Shearwaters. Single Red Kite and Marsh Harrier overflew the outer head, while wader interest included five Ringed Plovers, a Knot, two Common Sandpipers and a Greenshank. A (the) Turtle Dove re-appeared at Needles Plantation, while a lone White Wagtail was at the Fog Station.
