11th Jan

Bright and sunny this morning but turning wet and windy by mid-afternoon with thunder and lightning. Fairly quiet offshore except for a steady westerly movement of Kittiwakes with 650 in 3.25hrs along with four Little Gulls and two of the regular first-winter Caspian Gulls at the fishing boats. A check on the land produced a Marsh Harrier, three Chiffchaffs and a Firecrest of note.
