As the depression continues to work its way eastward over the north and west of the UK, strong winds and high tides produced some fantastic seascapes during the day. Most attention was focussed seaward, with only one or two passerines showing themselves inland. A Sooty Shearwater flying South past the West Side mid-morning was quite a surprise, and is likely to be the latest record of this species on Bardsey. Also seen out to sea were nine Fulmars, seven Gannets, 125 Guillemots, 52 Kittiwakes and three Common Gulls.
