3rd Feb

With miserable weather through the morning it was mainly a day of paperwork but a visit to the shore in the afternoon saw 13 Brent Geese head east and seven Shelduck, 90 Red-throated Divers and 350 auks west. The regular Iceland Gull also made a brief appearance at the fishing boats. 

Two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.
