The first-summer Bonaparte's Gull at Castle Island was the highlight of an otherwise quiet afternoon birding. It was showing really well about 10 metres from the south side of the river. Also here were 2 Little Ringed Plovers (including one with colour rings) and 5 Little Egrets.

Druridge Pools still held 3 Ruff (two stunning summer-plumage males) and 3 Black-tailed Godwit, while offshore a lone Bottlenose Dolphin was in the bay and a Manx Shearwater flew north.
