A rather wet and blustery day today with the wind blowing from the south east this morning. Which provided a good opportunity for some sea watching, even if visibility was a tad poor from time to time.
A total of 648 Brent Geese passed east this morning, along with 72 Common Scoter, 126 Gannets, 18 Fulmar and 6 Sandwich Terns. Notable highlights included a single Slavonian Grebe and an Arctic Skua heading east offshore. The Iceland Gull also made an appearance again this morning, as did a Glaucous Gull, both were heading towards the Patch.
Onshore seven Firecrests were seen today, most of which were near the Lighthouse Garden and two were in a private garden at the point.
A single Porpoise was seen from the point and a Brown Hare was seen in the Desert this afternoon.
