8th Aug

There was a reasonable arrival of migrants this morning with 55 Willow Warblers, two Sedge Warblers, a Garden Warbler, a Whinchat and a Tree Pipit of note.

Seawatching remains fairly slow going but the hardy few did four hours of watching and produced three Balearic Shearwaters of note. Two Mediterranean Gulls and a Yellow-legged Gull were also seen.

Five Porpoise and two Grey Seals were seen offshore.
