575 Gannets was the main species, the majority were distant but some came quite close (see right and below). Terns were well represented with 250 Common, 100 Sandwich and 3 Little Terns recorded along with a single dark phase Arctic Skua.
The gutter contained 2 Little Egrets before and after the tide although sadly there was no sign of yesterday evening's Spoonbill.
Small numbers of hirundines passed through including a late Sand Martin and 3 House Martin.
A massive count of 670 Atlantic Grey Seals is the second highest count ever (following a record count of 723 on 25th May 2010).
