Tough going today in strong and cold NE winds. The only birds of note on the land were a male Redstart and a Firecrest in the Old Lighthouse Garden and nine Blackcaps and 16 Redwings scattered around the area.
The sea was very slow with almost five hours of watching producing 329 Common Scoters, 11 Red-breasted Mergansers, two Grey Plovers, two Mediterranean Gulls and 54 Common Terns.
Ten Porpoises and a Grey Seal were seen offshore.
