Weather or not.........................!

Light to heavy rain showers a.m. clearing after midday, mod to fresh S, 16º, poor visibility, pretty rubbish weather!

A sea watch in the morning from the Obs produced a good passage of Gannet, maybe 500+ in all with most moving east, 2 Great Skua, 1 Balearic Shearwater, 4 Guillemot and 5 Common Scoter.
With the rain showers clearing after lunch we decided to take a walk, a Merlin and a Peregrine noted, a Chiffchaff, a cracking Black Redstart found by the Upper light, 6 Stonechat in total, a Little Owl, several Meadow Pipits, Pied Wagtails and Skylarks in the area.

2 Red Admiral seen with one in off the sea!
