Thank You for your understanding
Coverage was limited to seawatching and the Patch today. Other than large numbers of Guillemots it was very quiet offshore with just a 103 Red-throated Divers, a Great Skua and two Mediterranean Gulls of note while the regular first-winter Caspian Gull was at the fishing boats again and two additional birds were on the beach at the Patch.
