2nd Dec

There was a bit of movement offshore this morning which included 72 Wigeon, 105 Teal, two Shovelers and a Red-breasted Merganser and 155 Red-throated Divers whilst a Great Skua, 27 Kittiwakes and a Mediterranean Gull were loitering. In addition, an adult Yellow-legged Gull was in the roost at the Point.
A check of the land was fairly unproductive but 250 Starlings arrived and a Bullfinch was seen again in the trapping area.
