11th Feb

The day started with an overnight fall of snow which continued well into the morning. It was very gloomy and cold all day.
A two-hour seawatch this morning produced 435 Red-throated Divers, three Fulmars and 1400 auks. There was not much else other than a party of 11 Greylag Geese which flew high and out to sea in an easterly direction and were potentially wild birds heading back to Scandinavia?
The two juvenile/first-winter Iceland Gulls were feeding at the Patch again.
