Lots of birds offshore including 48 Wigeon, two Red-breasted Mergansers, 678 Red-throated Divers, a Little Gull, a Mediterranean Gull, a Great Skua, 1150 auks and the highlight of two Great Northern Divers. Two Chiffchaffs and a Black Redstart were seen on the land.
Singles of Porpoise, Common Seal and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
With the absolutely flat conditions it was perfect for the arrival of human migrants and at least five boats were seen today. One boat made landfall just a few yards along the beach from where I was watching.
