20th Jan

More of the same on the land with five Chiffchaffs and two Fieldfares being the highlights. There was a bit more interest on the sea again this morning with 11 Pintail, three Velvet Scoters, 500 Red-throated Divers, a Great Skua and over 2,500 auks passing through.

Two Porpoises and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.
