12th Dec

Another miserable morning which got steadily worse during the day. Seawatching produced four Shelduck, 800 Gannets and 160 auks but the unlikely highlight was a Coot which floated east past the seawatch hide. A second-winter Caspian Gull came in briefly to the offerings of bread.

A Firecrest was seen at the Long Pits.
