Sunny throughout, with light winds, variable in direction and temperatures that reached 16 degrees C. A singing Marsh Warbler was vocal at South Landing, but remained hidden for long periods only showing briefly. The male Red-backed Shrike also lingered there, while another male Red-backed Shrike graced South Dykes. A Spotted Flycatcher and two Siskins represented the only other passerine migrants. Seawatch highlights included 27 Manx Shearwaters, 21 Sandwich Terns and a Common Tern flying north.

Elsewhere, two Shelduck flew south-east over RSPB Bempton Cliffs, where a Marsh Harrier moved north-west.
