18th Aug

There was another small arrival of migrants this morning with 20 Willow Warblers dominating the numbers.
Seawatching provided most of the interest for the rest of the day with a long afternoon watch producing two Grey Plovers, 660 Sandwich Terns, 150 Common Terns and nine Black Terns. Three lingering Arctic Skuas and a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull were also present.

Six Porpoise, a Common Seal and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.
