19th November 2008

A force 6/7 westerly today with rain and drizzle but our intrepid observer braved the foul weather to see out the afternoon tide and was rewarded with a flock of 40 Kittiwakes flying down the east side and later off to the west. An excellent record for the middle of November, all the birds were seen to be adults. Two Scaup and 12 Common Scoter were also on the sea, while the Brents could only be counted at 114 Pale-bellied and 2 Dark, until 6 new pale birds were seen to arrive over the sea from the north which marked a new high for the winter.
