Weather:NW force 6 to 8 intermittent showers and rain
A sea watch in rough weather found good numbers of Common Scoter, Guillemot and Sandwich Terns but very little else.
Waders stuggled to find space on Middle with the spring high tide reducing the available rocks, while 40 Redshank were roosting in Niffy Bay.
Despite these conditions 4 Goldcrests were present with one being ringed and another retrapped from Wednesday..
The Shag seen over the last week or so was still here.
Ringed: 1 Goldcrest [ 689-31 ] photos JE
