Today saw another day of strong winds, followed by heavy rain in the afternoon. Unfortunately, migrants out to sea had slowed down considerably only one Fulmar, 321 Manx Shearwaters, 22 Gannets, 98 Guillemots, 12 Razorbills and two Puffins made their way past the island. However, six Arctic Terns passing the West Coast early on were a pleasant surprise.
