Gale force south-easterly winds were the dominating weather feature today, and were accompanied by drizzly rain at intervals during the day. A Great Skua was perhaps the highlight of a sewatching session off the South End in the morning. This was amongst a passahe that included one Fulmar, six Gannets, three Common Scoters, a Whimbrel, 23 Mediterranean Gulls, 29 Common Gulls, 362 Kittiwakes and 864 Guillemots. Elsewhere, singles of Redwing and Song Thrush were seen inland, along with a Greenfinch and a Skylark.
