29th July

A strong westerly overnight that lingered around in the day is not what you'd call ideal conditions. Still there some birds around although not as many as in previous days. Around at the bill were 3 Balearic Shearwater, 17 Manx Shearwater, 6 Common Scoter, 9 Willow Warbler, 4 Sedge Warbler, 3 Swift and a Whimbrel. At Ferrybridge there was 130 Dunlin, 40 Ringed Plover, 5 Turnstone, 4 Sanderling, 120 Common Tern and a single Sandwich Tern.
