15th Feb

With a switch to a more or less southerly breeze and warmer conditions it had a spring-like feel to the morning and the seawatching was very much improved. There was a massive movement of over 11,500 Guillemots east and plenty of other birds including 460 Brent Geese, five Shoveler, a Teal, seven Pintail, 154 Wigeon, 290 Red-throated Divers, two Black-throated Divers, a Great Northern Diver, a Great Skua and 340 Kittiwakes. Large numbers of gulls continue to feed  at the Patch with the two Iceland Gulls still present along with a first-winter Caspian Gull and two Mediterranean Gulls.

A Grey Seal and a Porpoise were also seen.
