There were masses of birds offshore again with 300 Red-throated Divers, 1000 Great Crested Grebes, 100's of Razorbills and 100 Kittiwakes of note and also attracting the attention of a Great Skua. The regular first-winter Caspian Gull was still present and showing very well.
A Chiffchaff on the power station fence was an unusual January sighting and a Bullfinch was noted in the trapping area.
Two Porpoises and a Grey Seal were also attracted to the offshore feeding frenzy.
