Ongoing Excavation Works.

3rd Apr

The sea was fairly quiet today but not without some interest with 4.5hrs of watching producing 757 Brent Geese, seven Mediterranean Gulls, a Great Skua, an Arctic Skua and four Common Terns passing east, a Shag which flew west close inshore and a Red-necked Grebe was on the sea.
Very little on the land with just two Willow Warblers and eight Wheatears of note.

Ten Porpoises were feeding offshore.
