After a night and morning of storm force winds the only place to be was on the beach at the fishing boats. There was an obvious increase in the number of gulls present with the highlight being a second-winter Iceland Gull. The first-winter Caspian Gull was present as usual. There was also a decent westerly movement of Kittiwakes and Guillemots offshore.
A Porpoise was also seen.
