Yet another wet and breezy day. Most of the coverage involved looking offshore but it was even slow going here with just a Shoveler, eight Teal, a drake Tufted Duck, 25 Common Scoters, 14 Little Gulls, four Mediterranean Gulls, a Dutch-ringed first-winter Caspian Gull, a Sandwich Tern and an Arctic Skua of note.
Two Grey Seals and a Common Seal were feeding offshore.
The most exciting find of the day though were two (sadly dead) Colombus Crabs among the clusters of Goose Barnacles on a washed up piece of marine equipment.
