The first news for several days suggests little was missed with a Hobby south offshore the highlight on a quiet day, also south offshore 25 Manx Shearwater and six Great Northern Diver. Elsewhere a Common Sandpiper was at the seawall and the Slavonian Grebe was off Cockwood but there were disappointingly low wader numbers on high tide with just 16 Whimbrel, 15 Dunlin, five Sanderling and a Turnstone.
