Thank You for your understanding in these difficult times.

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.
