The Roseate Terns again made frequent visits to Ferrybridge, where an unseasonable Brent Goose passed through and 8 Dunlin and 2 Sanderling were amongst what few waders were about. At the Bill, 4 Common Sandpipers constituted the only migrant interest on the land but there was a fair bit of movement on the sea, including 350 Manx Shearwaters, 40 Common Scoter, 11 Balearic Shearwaters, 3 Mediterranean Gulls, 2 Sandwich Terns and a Great Skua.
