A day which started with near unbirdable conditions and then got progressively worst as Storm Ciara arrived bringing 70+ mph winds and heavy rain with it. A couple of hardy souls saw the best birds of the day in the form of a Pochard and a drake Goosander passing offshore but there was little else to be seen other than a westerly trickle of Kittiwakes and a a Great Skua.
The seawatch hide looked to be in serious danger of being blown away but hopefully some hastily concocted measures will have saved it.
