29th August

A count of 53 Sooty Shearwaters passing the seawatching hide was the highest total for this species of the year so far. Other seabirds included 9 Manx Shearwaters, 4 Storm Petrels and 265 Fulmars. A Little Stint was still at the north end of the island and 2 Whinchats and 9 Willow Warblers were dotted around.

The other highlight of the day was the first Basking Shark of the year, seen off the north end of the island.
