Yet another day of very miserable weather but this time with the wind starting SSW and veering SE for a time around midday and with frequent rain it provided some excellent seawatching. Twelve hours continuous coverage produced 25 Manx Shearwaters, ten Balearic Shearwaters, 29 Sooty Shearwaters, 39 Fulmars, 316 Gannets, 66 Arctic Skuas, an adult Pomarine Skua, five Great Skuas, 11 Little Gulls, 348 Sandwich Terns, 1010 Common Terns, two Little Terns and 24 Black Terns all passing west. Three Yellow-legged Gulls were also seen on the beach. In addition, an Osprey and a Merlin came in off the sea and headed inland.
