A very breezy day produced another good seawatch this morning but this has petered out to very little as the wind increased by the afternoon.
Of note on the sea were 11 Pomarine Skuas (in six groups and all before 1025hrs), 32 Arctic Skuas and 20 Great Skuas and a few other bits and pieces in the form of five Velvet Scoters, a flock of 18 Eiders, a Little Ringed Plover, seven Mediterranean Gulls, six Little Gulls, 15 Little Terns and seven Black Terns.
On the land a Common Sandpiper and a Ring Ouzel at the Long Pits were of note.
Four Porpoises were seen offshore.
