13th Dec

A 1.75hour seawatch this morning produced some decent numbers but not a great deal of variety. Of note were three Fulmars, 338 Kittiwakes, five Mediterranean Gulls, 545 Guillemots and 252 Razorbills. Two first-winter Caspian Gulls and two Yellow-legged Gulls were seen at the Patch. A Jack Snipe, four Chiffchaffs, a Dartford Warbler, a Brambling and a Redpoll were of note on the land.

One Porpoise was feeding offshore.
