A Hobby flew south at Cornelian Bay, where there was a drake Common Scoter, 2 Curlew and 5 adult Black-headed Gulls. A single Crossbill flew west over Falsgrave Park, and a Curlew flew over the old prison, in the area of which a female Peregrine was seen hunting. At Cromer Point a Cuckoo was seen flying south, as were 3 Black-headed Gulls and a steady trickle of Swifts (288 counted through the afternoon).
