24th Jan

The fog had more or less cleared by morning and left a cold but very calm day. A 1.5hr seawatch this morning produced a constant down-channel movement of 836 Red-throated Divers along with two Pintail and a couple of surprises in the form of two Egyptian Geese. The regular Great Skua was hunting offshore and check of the Patch in the afternoon found the two juvenile/first-winter Iceland Gulls still present along with two Mediterranean Gulls.
