9th April

A day of pretty miserable weather meant that nearly all the interest was offshore where 6.75hrs of seawatching produced an easterly movement which included 456 Brent Geese, three Velvet Scoters, a Red-breasted Mergansers, two Black-throated Divers, two Sooty Shearwaters (very unusual at this time of year), two Manx Shearwaters, 26 Fulmars, 198 Gannets, five Arctic and 15 Great Skuas, 441 Sandwich Terns and 21 Common Terns

Five Porpoises and a Brown Hare were also seen.
