14th December

Seawatching continues to provide most of the interest with 14 Shelducks, a Goosander (a surprisingly scarce bird offshore), nine Red-breasted Mergansers, a Black-necked Grebe, a Great Skua, 45 Kittiwakes and a few auks passing west of interest. However, there was almost a spring feel to the day with 140 Brent Geese passing upchannel.

A new second-winter Caspian Gull was seen in the roost in the morning.
