20th Sep

With a fresh easterly wind blowing there was a bit of interest offshore with the highlights being two Sooty Shearwaters, 20 Mediterranean Gulls, two Great Skuas, eight Arctic Skuas and at least 650 Sandwich Terns but it was virtually birdless on the land.

Ten Porpoises, two Grey Seals and a Common Seal were feeding offshore.
