5th January

Another grim day of strong winds, frequent torrential rain and occasional hail storms meant seawatching was the only reasonable option again.
Four hours of watching in two spells resulted in 62 Teal, two Eiders, 11 Fulmars, 364 Gannets, four Grey Plovers, 89 Kittiwakes, 265 Guillemots and eight Razorbills of interest and a Shag and 40 Little Gulls of particular note.
The regular first-winter Caspian Gull was in the roost and a third-winter Yellow-legged Gull was feeding along the shoreline.

A Grey Seal was also seen.
