Ongoing Excavation Works.

16th Oct

A very windy day with rough sea and heavy rain during the morning. Several hours of seawatching through the day eventually produced a bit if interest in the form of two Sooty Shearwaters, two Pomarine Skuas and three Great Skuas passing through whilst at least five Mediterranean Gulls and a Common Tern were feeding offshore.
Very quiet on the land with just five Ring Ouzels of note.

A Brown Hare was seen.
