Fulmar: 2 up
Gannet: 24 up
Cormorant: many present n/c
Kittiwake: 12 up

The Slavonian Grebe was still on The New Diggings viewed from the causeway at the southern end.
The Ring-necked Duck was still on Cook's Pool with a Great White Egret.
No sign of the Long-eared Owl at the Dipping Pool or any Scaup on Burrowes. In a circular walk of the reserve passerines were virtually non existent, a drake and 2 red head Smew were the highlights.
