6th May

A day of almost continuous seawatching in SE winds certainly produced the goods with a total of 121 Pomarine Skuas passing east - the fifth best-ever day total. Numbers of other species were generally low but did include a drake Garganey, a Manx Shearwater, 36 Sanderlings, 42 Whimbrel, 15 Arctic Skuas, three Great Skuas, 41 Little Terns and seven Little Gulls.
The land had very little to offer with just three Whinchats at the Long Pits of note.

Ten Porpoises and a Grey Seal  were seen.offshore and the first Blue-tailed Damselfly of the spring was seen at the Long Pits.
