On 5th still 2 Long-tailed Skuas, 6 Great Shearwaters and a few Manx Shearwaters in the evening, but on 6th nd 7th numbers were very low for all the species.

On 9th the first Black Tern was watched during the morning count, and the first young Northern Gannet in the evening, as well as 1 Long Tailed Skua, 3 Little Terns, a few “Commic Terns” and 1 Sandwhich Tern.
