11th Aug

Another windy day but the sea continues to disappoint with 6.5hrs of watching producing just three Balearic and one Manx Shearwater, three Mediterranean Gulls, 140 Sandwich Terns, two Little Terns, 111 Common Terns and singles of Arctic and Great Skua of note. Three Yellow-legged Gulls were seen at the fishing boats.
Not much to be seen on the land in the difficult conditions.

Single Porpoise and Grey Seal were seen offshore.
