3rd August 2017

Phil, Richard and I did a seawatch from 08:40 to 14:40 (a long time for us), in an increasingly strong SW gale and had 2 Common Scoters, 6 Manx Shearwaters, 2 Shags, 5 Dunlins, 3 Arctic Skuas, 37 Black-headed Gulls, 3 Mediterranean Gulls, 194 Kittiwakes, 16 Sandwich Terns, 19 'Commic Terns', 20 Common Terns, 3 Arctic Terns, 3 Auk sps. and 35 Swifts.
Later in the afternoon there were 120 Swallows and 6 Yellow Wagtails in the Paddock.

I know it's hardly award winning but a bit of practice so we don't mess up the Fea's Petrel.
