9th Jan

A calmer but very murky day which barely seemed to get light. Seawatching was not as good as yesterday but still produced 11 Pintails, three Red-breasted Mergansers, an astonishing minimum of 6000 Cormorants, a Great Skua and lots of Guillemots and Razorbills during a two-hour watch this morning. The regular first-winter Caspian Gull was feeding around the strand line at the fishing boats.
A check of the bushes found just one Bullfinch of note.
