16th Feb

A much quieter day on the sea but two Greylag Geese came in from the south, three Velvet Scoters and 170 Red-throated Divers flew east and a Great Northern Diver flew west. Guillemots were moving in all directions with about 2000 seen.
The two Iceland Gulls were still at the Patch along with a first-winter Caspian Gull and an adult Mediterranean Gull.

Two Porpoises were seen.
