90 minutes of observation this morning produced a respectable count of eight Balearic Shearwaters flying west, along with an Arctic Skua. Three southbound Sand Martins this morning were followed by an exodus of 1,764 Common Swifts over a two-hour vigil in the afternoon, during which time two Manx Shearwaters and a 2nd-summer Mediterranean Gull passed west offshore. In addition, 10 Common Scoters flew west and a Marsh Harrier flew over the beach.
Over at Scotney, the Spoonbill was still showing on the causeway between the eastern pits.
