Tuesday 1st November 2106

With the wind from the North attention turned to the sea, with  an hours sea watch producing a count of 106 Gannet, 11 Great  and 3 Arctic Skuas, which was somewhat quieter than hoped. On the Broadwater there were four Goldeneye and a Kingfisher at the western end, and at least six Twite were along the seawall towards Thornham Harbour.
