4th Jan

A miserable day of strong north-easterly winds and frequent wintry rain. The Patch and seawatching were the only sensible options. The former was much quieter than of late with just an adult Caspian Gull and a first-winter Yellow-legged Gull of interest. Three hours of seawatching produced four Fulmars, 48 Mediterranean Gulls, a first-winter Caspian Gull and four Great Skuas of note.

A Common Seal was feeding offshore.
