3rd May

Still very quiet on the land but seawatching followed a similar pattern to recent days with a fairly quiet morning then a decent passage in the afternoon. A total of 11 hours of seawatching produced two Black-throated and a Great Northern Diver, nine Manx Shearwaters, six Knot, ten Great Skuas, 25 Pomarine Skuas and 28 Arctic Skuas of note.
