23rd May 2014

Weather: NE 6/7, Rain early clearing later

An atrocious day weather-wise and unsurprisingly there were very few migrants around although single Wheatear, White Wagtail and Chiffchaff pushed through.

Four Whimbrel and 7 Little Egret were around the gutter on the ebbing tide.

The day was enlivened by some seawatching with a few Gannets (20) and Common Terns just off the island over and after the tide. The highlight of the day was an adult light phase Arctic Skua which passed close in ip the West Side opposite the Obs before  passing around the North End and heading off North East.
