21st Jan

After a night of violent storms which resulted in more tiles blowing off the roof it continued very wet and windy for most of the day. A couple of seawatches produced four Velvet Scoters and 140 Common Scoters passing to the west. Although there was no Patch there were hundreds of gulls feeding along the shoreline with the regular Iceland Gull still present along with a first-winter Caspian Gull and two Yellow-legged Gulls.
