Fairly quiet on both land and sea today. Seven hours of seawatching produced just 15 Eider, two Mediterranean Gulls, six Great Skuas, five Arctic Skuas and an incoming Hobby of interest.
There was a very small arrival of Willow Warblers with 11 birds being seen and a Buzzard and three Yellow Wagtails flew over.
At least 15 Porpoises were feeding offshore.
There also seemed to be a bit of a clear out of some of the rarer birds in the general area over the last few days. A Garganey and at least one Cattle Egret remain at Hayfield 3 on the RSPB Reserve and a male Blue-headed Wagtail was still in the harrowed field at Springfield Bridge.
