      1 Storm Petrel – c.250-300 m offshore, mostly resting on sea with occasional brief fluttering flights, but seemingly drifting into the Bay with the incoming tide at 10.25-10.30 am. Difficult to see as mostly hidden in wave troughs.

      1 Guillemot on sea
      2 adult Gannet flew out
      30+ Dunlin flying out of the Bay in small groups
