Harbour Porpoises!

Another very slow sea watch in a very cold Easterly 5-6, fortunately trying to count the Harbour Porpoises popping up and down kept some interest going.
08.00-09.15 from the sea watch hide.
Red-breasted Merganser: 1 E
Red-throated Diver: 4 E  2 on sea
Great-crested Grebe: 52 on sea
Fulmar: 2 E
Gannet: 3 E
Oystercatcher: 5 E
Turnstone: 1 on concrete road behind hide.
Black Redstart: 2 behind hide
Pied Wagtail: 4 behind hide
Meadow Pipit: 1 behind hide
Harbour Porpoise: 4+

The Patch from the hide found nothing of note.
Black-headed Gull: c1,000
Common Gull: c50
Herring Gull: c500
Lesser B.B.Gull: c30
Great B B Gull: c 150
Cormorant: c60
 Turnstone on the concrete road behind the sea watch hide.
 Meadow Pipit on the perimeter wall.

A check of the Gull roost on The Point found this Yellow-legged Gull of note among the commoner species.
