29th September 2021

Weather: WNW force 5

The wind direction encouraged a sea watch to take place today which was rewarded with a first for the year Great Skua flying west passed the island.

Two drake Eiders also went west and during the watch 6 Gannets, 13 Guillemots, a single Sandwich tern and about 75 Common Scoter were noted. In the late afternoon 2 Golden Plover appeared from the east and a Razorbill added to the sea bird list. A Grey Wagtail was the only small migrant noticable in these conditions although extra Meadow Pipits did come through. Both Peregrine and Kestrel were about.
