Monday 1st June

Summer began with a distinctly autumnal low pressure system producing ideal conditions for an evening  seawatch. The highlight were the first three Storm Petrel of the year with a Puffin and two Arctic Skua heading south along  with 482 Manx Shearwater, 96 Guillemot, 60 Gannet, 26 Kittiwake, 14 Fulmar and two Common Tern. Elsewhere over the morning high tide wader counts included 253 Sanderling, 85 Dunlin, 65 Ringed Plover, four Grey Plover, a Turnstone and a Knot.
