Monday 31st August 2015

A wet windy day, which was hoped would produce some seabird movement. Unfortunately with visibility and conditions for viewing poor this produced no more than a handful of species, such as Gannet and Arctic Skua. Little was noted around the recording area but birds seen did included two Black-tailed Godwits, a Greenshank and a seemingly hungry young Marsh Harrier that continued to hunt throughout the day even in the heavy rain.
