12th Apr

A very windy and ultimately wet day with most of the coverage involving looking offshore. However, it was very quiet with 3.5hrs of watching producing just one Mediterranean Gull, six Common Terns, three Arctic Skuas and ten Fulmars of interest. Two Egyptian Geese which flew around the Long Pits, a Jack Snipe at the Wigwams and a Redstart were the only birds of note on the land.

Seven Porpoises and two Grey Seal were seen.
