22nd December

Another very windy and frequently wet day restricted observations to sea and gull watching. Two Caspian Gulls were seen with a new second-winter bird and the regular first-winter bird still present.


Offshore there was a steady passage of Gannets and Kittiwakes, a few Fulmars and two Great Skuas west but Brent Geese continue to think it is spring with another 210 birds in small flocks moving east during the day.
