7th Aug

A breezy day meant most of the interest was offshore where nearly eight hours of watching produced two Balearic Shearwaters of note along with eight Fulmars, 472 Gannets, a Knot, five Dunlin, three Redshank, four Mediterranean Gulls, 211 Sandwich Terns, 371 Common Terns and an Arctic Skua moving west. Two Yellow-legged Gulls were also seen on the beach.

Very little to be seen on the land.

Six Porpoises and singles of both Grey and Common Seal were seen offshore and a Brown Hare and two Stoats were seen on the land.

A Clouded Yellow was seen on the beach in front of the power station.
