A relatively overcast day, with light rain from early afternoon and a high of 17 degrees C. Seawatch highlights included 43 Common Scoters, an Arctic Tern and 98 Manx Shearwaters flying north. Elsewhere, a Great White Egret headed north-west over North Landing at 0555hrs. Five Shoveler remained on the outer head, with single Gadwall and Water Rail at Thornwick Pools. A Hobby overflew South Landing, with a single also hunting the eastern edge of Bempton village early evening.
