23rd Sep

Another cold, wet and windy day which produced very little other than a trickle of birds offshore. Seawatching for much of the day produced just three Brent Geese, 12 Great Skuas, seven Arctic Skuas and two Mediterranean Gulls. Three Yellow-legged Gulls were also roosting on the beach.

Ten Porpoises and three Grey Seals were feeding offshore from the fishing boats.
