Dreadful weather this morning produced an excellent seawatch. The most exceptional record was of 415 Fulmars (including 17 blue-phase birds) along with 12 Pintails, 11 Eiders, six Avocets, three Great Skuas, and a Sandwich Tern of note. Other notable counts included 718 Kittiwakes, 246 Brent Geese, 307 Common Scoters, 878 Gannets and five Mediterranean Gulls.
A Porpoise and a Grey Seal were also seen.
