Watching the early stages of the incoming tide from knowlys road reaffirmed that the sea is where you need to be at the moment to see stuff you may find difficult at other times of the year around here

Little tern - one fishing and showing well for five mins before drifting out of sight
Little Gull - two ad summer (or 3cy) together heading into bay. Thought they were black tern for a split second as the light was such all I noticed was the jet black underwings!
Arctic Skua - dark morph on then in
Sandwich tern - 16
Common scoter - min of 420
Guillemot - 10
Raz/guill - c10 distant
Gannet - 5
Manx - 1
Two arctic tern on outfalls
1275 big seagulls on skeers
Long staying 2cy shag close inshore then flew towards wooden jetty
Eider - 85
Great crested Grebe - still 7 (3 pairs)
