Blasting Easterlies!

With an easterly wind blasting across the peninsula this morning I wasn't expecting big things today.
07.00-08.30 from The Point with AJG who kindly collated the numbers:
Common Scoter: 5E
Gannet: 69E
Arctic Skua: 1E
Sandwich Tern: 16E
Razorbill: 28E
Guillemot: 7E
Auk sp: 96E
Swallow: 6 out
I joined AJG in a stroll around the trapping area, highlights were 15 Siskin, a Brambling, 2 Swallows and 6+ Chiffchaffs.
Late morning 8 Great White Egrets could be seen on the ARC from the causeway.

This afternoon at the fishing boats a 1w Caspian Gull came into the gull scrum, also an adult Yellow-legged Gull was also present. Offshore c40 Gannets feeding, 3 Mediterranean Gulls and few Auks tooing and froing.
