24th Jan

A better day for a change although still very quiet on the land with just two Water Rails in the Trapping Area of note. After two severe storms in quick succession there were suddenly thousands of gulls feeding offshore and with four first-winter Caspian Gulls and a second-winter Yellow-legged Gull of note.

A Common Seal and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.
