Friday 7th June

Storm Miguel was certainly wet and windy but relatively short lived here and failed to sustain winds for long in a productive direction. Consequently seawatching was tough going with the only reward being a European Storm-petrel and a skua sp. Also small numbers of Gannet, Fulmar and Kittiwake; four Common Tern, three Manx Shearwater, two Common Scoter, two Sandwich Tern and a single Guillemot.  

On the mid-morning tide, c130 Oystercatcher, five Ringed Plover, five Dunlin, three Grey Plover, two Whimbrel, single Turnstone and a first-summer Medieterrean Gull.
