18th May

With a fresh southerly breeze most of the interest was offshore this morning before a band of rain arrived and the wind veered south-westerly and virtually ended any movement. A total of 7.5 hrs of seawatching produced seven Pomarine Skuas and two Great Northern Divers of note along with a Velvet Scoter, a Black-throated Diver, 22 Fulmars, a Manx Shearwater, 50 Sanderlings, eight Arctic Skuas, three Great Skuas and five Little Terns.

Very little on the land other than a steady trickle of Swallows arriving during the morning.


Three Porpoises were feeding offshore.
