The morning seawatch was again dominated by Red-throated Divers with 156 and auks with 3463 in 2.75hrs. Two Mediterranean Gulls were also seen. A check of the Patch at low water saw lots of gulls but very difficult viewing conditions but eventually a first-winter Caspian Gull came onto the roof of the office cabins.

Two Porpoises and a Common Seal were feeding offshore.
Also of interest, this uncommon puffball Winter Stalk-ball was found in the trapping area.
