20th Apr

Another day with a howling NE wind and very few birds to be seen. Nearly four hours of seawatching produced just two Shovelers, two Red-breasted Mergansers, 63 Whimbrel, 85 Bar-tailed Godwits, three Mediterranean Gulls, a Great Skua and two Arctic Skuas of note along with two Little Gulls, two Arctic Terns and 160 Common Terns at the Patch. Nothing much to report on the land.

A Porpoise and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.
