Day started with a decent seawatch (08.00 - 11.30), most notable event being a reasonable passage of Divers. 24 passed in total, all going west, and consisted of 13 Red-throated, 4 Great Northern, 3 Black-throated and 4 unidentified. Other highlights were 2 Balearic Shearwaters, also west, 100 Gannets, the first Fulmar for a few weeks, 140 Auks, (mainly Guillemots today), at least twelve Common Gulls and up to 30 Kittiwakes. A small selection of wildfowl included 2 Brent Geese (dark-bellied), 3 Shelduck and singles of Wigeon, Gadwall and Common Scoter.
Along the shore were several cold weather refugees. As well as the usual Oystercatchers (75), Curlews (3) and Turnstones (12), there were 9 Dunlin, 5 Knot, 2 Redshank and a Grey Plover. The more usual cold-weather suspects were only present in small numbers - 25 Golden Plover, 17 Lapwing and 10 Snipe.
Also present today, 9 Med Gulls, 100+ Skylarks and single Blackcap and Chiffchaff.
