Ongoing Excavation Works.

2nd Oct

Not a great deal to report on a mainly damp and breezy day. A two hour seawatch this morning produced two Eiders, 703 Gannets, 354 Sandwich Terns and 12 Arctic Skuas and not much else whilst the bushes were very quiet.
A few Swallows, House Martins and Goldfinches moved south during the day.

Three Porpoises and a Grey Seal were seen feeding offshore today.
