Another miserable day but fresh southerly winds produced a decent movement of birds with a Red-breasted Merganser, a Black-throated Diver, over 1000 Gannets, 258 Kittiwakes, a Mediterranean Gull, three Sandwich Terns, three Great Skuas and two Pomarine Skua of note. An adult Yellow-legged Gull was among the gulls on the beach. A Hummingbird Hawkmoth was a surprise find in the moth trap this morning.
