Ongoing Excavation Works.

31st Jan

A very cold day with heavy frost this morning and some snow after dark.
The sea continues to provide most of the interest with five first-winter Caspian Gulls, two Yellow-legged Gulls and five Mediterranean Gulls at the Patch. For sheer numbers the most impressive feature of the day was a minimum of 11,000 Cormorants. Good numbers of auks continue to be seen.
Two Firecrest were seen in the trapping area.

A Porpoise and a Grey Seal were seen offshore.
