Another surprise

Sunny, 12º, light E, still cool in the wind.

Another day where the land migration was minimal, a few Willow Warbler, a Chiffchaff, a Reed Warbler, “singing” Water Rail and five Wheatear noted. A very light passage of Swallow and five Swift.

The morning sea watch was light with a flock of “comic” Tern feeding off the bill and two Roseate Tern present again. A Great Northern Diver, fourteen Bar-tailed Godwit and five Common Scoter.
The evening sea watch produced another surprise with two Long-tailed Duck passing by, also two Pomarine Skua, and an Arctic Skua, a distant Great Skua, one hundred and twenty plus “comic” Tern, one Roseate Tern, ten Manx Shearwater and two Whimbrel, plus the usual Auks, Gannets, Fulmar etc.
