26th Mar

With a fresh SW wind this morning most of the interest was offshore with over five hours of watching producing 154 Brent Geese, four Pintail, 11 Teal, 144 Common Scoters, 156 Red-throated Divers, a Black-throated Diver, 26 Fulmars, the first Manx Shearwater of the year, 706 Gannets, 82 Kittiwakes, six Mediterranean Gulls, a Glaucous Gull and 42 Sandwich Terns.

Very little to report from the land except for the unusual sighting of a male Pheasant strutting around the fishing boats. 

A Porpoise and a Common Seal were also seen offshore.
