However 08.30-09.00 saw once again plenty of Guillemots, Razorbills and Great Crested Grebes on the sea, c60 Red-throated Divers flew east, being joined by a handful each of Gannets and Kittiwakes.
On the beach the 3w Glaucous Gull, also droopy the Great Black Backed Gull, which is unable to close its wings tightly to its body but is able to fly perfectly well, consequently in today's wind its wings were flopping about.
