Monday 10th May

An evening seawatch confirmed the continuing dearth of skuas despite large numbers of Kittiwake and Herring Gull feeding distantly offshore. Also present a summer plumaged Great Northern Diver with 40+ Gannet, 28 Guillemot, 20 Manx Shearwater, 10 Sandwich Tern and a Fulmar south. On the seawall three Turnstone and 15 Dunlin, including a bird ringed on 20 Oct 2020 at Kilbrittain, Cork, Ireland. On its first migration north, 384 km from the ringing site, but it has no doubt travelled much further in those 202 days.
