A Yellow-browed Warbler remains in Holbeck ravine, loosely associating with a tit flock.

By mid-afternoon a third Red-throated Diver was in North Bay, 140 Wigeon were at Scalby Mills, a Kingfisher flew north over the sea defence rocks by the skate park, 3 Guillemots were off Marine Drive, and 10 Purple Sandpipers were roosting at the harbour.
