At South Cliff 2 Barnacle Geese and 2 Ringed Plovers flew south. The watch at Long Nab was slow but 2 Common Terns and 2 Dunlin flew north. The Stonechat pair have fledged three young and the Grasshopper Warbler sang briefly just north of the observatory. A Reed Warbler was seen in bushes along Taylor Way near Seamer Tip.
