25th Sep

With more wind and rain it was another day dominated by seawatching. Over eight hours of watching produced 793 Gannets, two Sooty and eight Balearic Shearwaters, 1052 Sandwich Terns, 11 Great Skuas and 73 Arctic Skuas. Three Yellow-legged Gulls were also seen on the beach. Limited coverage of the bushes produced three Firecrests.

Two Porpoises and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.
