28th Nov

Seawatching in bright but cold conditions produced very little of interest. The scant highlights were two Great Skua, a single Velvet Scoter and 34 Red-throated Diver (33E/1W). 

Meanwhile an early morning look at The Patch provided some interest with a first-winter Caspian Gull, an adult Yellow-legged Gull and 14 Mediterranean Gulls amongst thousands of mixed gulls.


A single Grey Seal was seen from the Fishing Boats.

The only bird of note in the afternoon session from the Fishing Boats was a Long-tailed Duck heading west.

On the RSPB Reserve the only bird reported today was the drake Ring-necked Duck
