Despite low winds, very few birds were around today, with most being the usual breeding birds. Good numbers of seabirds moved by at sea during the morning: 13 Fulmars, 306 Manx Shearwaters, 35 Gannets, 20 Common Scoters, 20 Kittiwakes, 41 Guillemots, 63 Razorbills and six Puffins were the totals. Inland, the only noteworthy species present were the three Collared Doves in the plantation, the lone Starling from yesterday, four House Martins and eight Spotted Flycatchers.
