More of the same!

Weather was very much the same as yesterday with a strong SW blowing and heavy seas so a non-birding excursion off island was in order to Lulworth Cove and Durdle Dor.

A sea watch early morning produced, 1 Pomarine Skua, 1 Arctic Skua and 2 Great Skua, 3 Whimbrel and 1 Great Northern Diver.

Gannet, Manx Shearwater, Fulmar, Kittiwake and both Razorbill and Guillemot noted.

Swallows started arriving around 09:00 and continued throughout the day and a single House Martin seen.

Only other passerines noted was a Whitethroat in song at Portland and a Grey Wagtail at Lulworth.
