The highlights of the best day's seawatching of the year so far were a Great Shearwater, the second Balearic Shearwater of the year, 2 adult Pomarine Skuas and the honorary seabird of the day: a Short-eared Owl. Good numbers of commoner species included 435 Sooty Shearwaters, 135 Manx Shearwaters, 1902 Fulmars (including 3 blue phase birds), 261 Kittiwakes, 9 Great Skuas and 4 Arctic Skuas.
Back on the land, an Ortolan Bunting found at Senness in the evening was the best new arrival and an addition to the year-list. The elusive Citrine Wagtail put in another brief appearance in the morning, 2 Barred Warblers (one of which was probably new) were seen and a Common Rosefinch was at Holland House. Counts of other small migrants came to 4 Willow Warblers, 3 Lesser Whitethroats, 2 Common Whitethroats, 2 Blackcaps, 1 Garden Warbler, 1 Robin, 16 Lapland Buntings and 35 Snow Buntings.
