Soggy Yellow-legged Gull
With a moderate SE wind blowing this morning hopes were high for a good sea watch. But once again the flocks of hoped for Shearwaters, Petrels and Skuas failed to materialise. At midday and the rain lashing down, it was almost a relief when the fisherman turned up to take the boat we were sheltering by out.
