With the forecast still good I arranged to meet Rhys Jones for another seawatch.
The morning was brighter; dry, with a force 7 westerly and some broken cloud.
Total counts (all heading SW) between 0715-1055 hrs were:
12 Common Scoter
21 Sooty Shearwater - the highest number recorded on site.
262 Manx Shearwater
9 Shag (presumably local birds)
16 Arctic Skua (5 distant dark, 3 pale phase adults, 1 intermediate and 7 gingery immatures)
5 Great Skua
1 GBB Gull
8 Sandwich Tern
7 Common/Arctic Tern
4 Auk sp
Strangely no Balearic Shearwaters were seen - usually they're guaranteed here.
A single peachy 1st winter Wheatear was hanging around by the shore.
Cetacean interest came in the form of a pod of at least four Risso's Dolphins which were crashing through the surf relatively close in - superb!
