Just about all the news was from the seawatchers, with 130 Manx Shearwaters, 20 Common Scoter, 4 Balearic Shearwaters, 4 commic terns, 3 Black-headed Gulls, 2 Mediterranean Gulls and 2 Sandwich Terns through off the Bill. The only other reports were of the Hooded Crow still about at Admiralty Quarry/Grove pig farm and a Chiffchaff at the Bill.

Immigrants/wanderers caught overnight in the Obs garden moth-traps included 8 Rusty-dot Pearl, 2 each of Diamond-back Moth, Cream-bordered Green Pea and Silver Y, and singles of Clouded Border and Dark Spectacle.
