4th Sept

Most of the days interest was offshore in fresh westerly winds. Five hours of watching produced 22 Arctic Skuas, two Little Gulls, four Black Terns, 948 Sandwich Terns and 183 Common Terns. Three Yellow-legged Gulls were feeding at the fishing boats but more interesting was a very small and dainty looking juvenile "LBBGull".

A Hobby was seen at the Long Pits but any other migrants on the land were few and far between.
