During the last few days there have been some dramatic gatherings of seabirds feeding on ‘fry’ just offshore behind the lighthouse where hundreds of Kittiwakes were joined by over 100 Mediterranean Gulls, also Gannets, auks, Shags and other species made for a spectacle of over 1200 birds at this big blue dining table.
A productive sea-watch this morning included Great Skua, Sooty and Balearics Shearwaters and a rare local record of 6 Little Gulls.
In the census area Matt and I also recorded 2 Black Redstarts, Great Spotted Woodpecker and Kingfisher today.
