It was quiet this morning and I refer you back to that word 'northwesterly' for the reason. First up were 3 Eiders in the surf and then Oystercatchers began to flock totalling 441. Four Kittiwakes moved west into the wind and out of the Bay, along with 17 Sandwich Terns and 5 Gannets.
The best bird of the morning was a Great Skua that lumbered along the beach just over the surf. I followed it until lost from view the other side of my shelter, which was the Coastguard's tower. After two hours of not seeing very much it was time to head home. I called at the Nature Park on my way and it was similar to yesterday other than there were 9 Little Grebes out on the main pool.
What's it going to be like tomorrow? You've guessed it; northwesterly!
