13th Dec

Another miserable day with poor visibility in almost continuous drizzle and light rain. Coverage was limited to a few looks at the sea where the highlight was a party of Velvet Scoter passing west close inshore. The two first-winter Caspian Gulls from yesterday were still around and were joined by a new second-winter bird in the afternoon.
