7th May

Although the wind had dropped it was still from the NE and cold and cloudy.
Seawatching continued provide most of the interest with 9.75 hrs of coverage producing another 12 Pomarine Skuas, ten Arctic Skuas, 90 Little Terns, 104 Black Terns and 4300 "commic" Terns. Other bits and pieces included three Eider, three Red-breasted Mergansers, a Manx Shearwater, a Hobby, an Avocet, 86 Whimbrel, a Great Skua, 76 Arctic Terns, three Mediterranean Gulls and four Little Gulls. The regular Iceland Gull was still feeding at the Patch.
Still very quiet on the land with just a Sedge Warbler in the moat and a Tree Pipit overhead.

A Grey Seal and six Porpoise were feeding offshore.
