Sunny intervals throughout, with a blustery westerly airstream and peak temperature of 18 degrees C. The winds pushed insects and associated aerial feeders onto the headland, including 65 Swallows, 590 House Martins and 460 Swifts.

The Thornwick/North Landing area attracted a Short-eared Owl, single Hobby and a pair of Garganey. Five Teal, a Ringed Plover and six Dunlin were also recorded, while a pair of Little Grebe were accompanied by three chicks.

Single Marsh Harrier and Hobby overflew RSPB Bempton Cliffs.
