Little change over the last few days in the continuing strong NE wind and clear skies. The highlights of the seawatching were just two Black-throated Divers, 105 Bar-tailed Godwits, eight Mediterranean Gulls and a sole Arctic Skua. Two Yellow Wagtails on the beach were about the only migrants on the land. Three Porpoises were feeding offshore. The local Red Foxes seem to have become much tamer since the "lockdown".
