1st Jan

Firstly, a Happy New Year to all our readers.

A gloomy, very wet day to start the New Year which limited observations to sea- and gull-watching from the shelter of our cars. The sea produced two Velvet Scoters, two Great Skuas, a Mediterranean Gull and what was presumably yesterdays first-winter Glaucous Gull along with good numbers of Gannets and Guillemots, four Fulmars and a handful of Razorbills.
At least three Caspian Gulls (two first-winters and an adult) were seen around the Point during the day. 

A Porpoise was also feeding offshore.
