Maybe Tomorrow

April 29th prime sea watching time and only PT and Barney in the sea watch hide did not bode well for an exciting watch. As the following totals sorry tale tells. 07.15-09.00

Red-throated Diver: 1E
Black-throated Diver: 1E
Fulmar: 2 off shore
Gannet: c25 off shore
Brent Goose: 7E
Common Scoter: 68E   9W
Eider: 4E   (3 adult drakes)
Arctic Skua: 2E
Great Skua: 2E
Commic Tern: 45E    c30 off shore
Sandwich Tern: c15 off shore
As The joker would say a good day in Bedfordshire!!!!!

With few migrants seemingly about and nothing of note at the south end of the ARC I cut my losses to prepare the house for the arrival of plumbers and electricians.
2hrs BOP watching from the house balcony was disappointing with 1 Common Buzzard, 1 Sparrowhawk, 1 Kestrel and the resident Marsh Harriers,
The forecast for the next 2 days looks hopeful, ever the optimist.
