7th Dec

A 2.5 hour seawatch this morning produced a Great Northern Diver, 388 Red-throated Divers, a Grey Plover, two Little Gulls, ten Mediterranean Gulls, a Great Skua and a few auks heading west of note.
It was very quiet on the land although a Blackcap was seen in a private garden and the female Pheasant was seen again. House Sparrow is a species which doesn't normally make an appearance on this page but a flock of around 80 birds in the Observatory garden was pretty unusual. 

A Grey Seal and a Porpoise were feeding offshore.
