Moderate east-south-easterlies developed during a largely sunny day, with temperatures reaching 19 degrees C. Four Manx Shearwaters, six Sandwich Terns and four Common Terns flew south during the seawatch, with two Arctic Terns moving in the opposite direction. Five Mute Swans and a Little Ringed Plover were in residence at Thornwick, with a lone Mute Swan south over Breil Nook. A total of 142 Swifts headed south-east over RSPB Bempton Cliffs, where the Black-browed Albatross continued to entertain.
