8th Dec

Another 2.5 hour seawatch this morning was quite good with seven Velvet Scoters, 398 Red-throated Divers, five Fulmars, 420 Gannets, 27 Kittiwakes and a Great Skua of note.

Elsewhere, a Glossy Ibis arrived on the RSPB Reserve and the two Whooper Swans were still at Dengemarsh. At least 11 Caspian Gulls were seen on Burrowes during the day.
