Weather:- WNW force 5/6
An increase in wind strength at least gave hope of some seabirds on the early tide this morning but despite an intense 4 hours watching the rewards were meagre. On the log were 100 Gannets, 2 Manx Shearwaters, 30 Common Scoter, 6 Great Crested Grebes, 4 Guillemots, and 6 skuas including 4 definite Arctics. A juvenile Arctic came along the tide edge by the obs and flew across the middle of the island to the west side (right).
