Despite the clear sky there was plenty of passage through the islands this morning with many parties of Skylarks totalling 50 birds, finches also featured with 8 Goldfinches, 4 Greenfinches, and a Chaffinch, alongside 2 Starlings and a Redwing. A single Goldcrest was down with 2 Blackbirds and a Song Thrush. The 11 Eiders stayed very close to the rocks at times.
 Two different Peregrines were around this morning.

Redshanks are still increasing in numbers, 256 were counted today, aslo 34 Dunlin, 2 Bar-tailed Godwits, 2 Grey Plover and 30 Curlew.

The Purple Sandpiper of yesterday could not be found on the low tide.
