Another sea watch this morning. The wind has shifted round to a south westerly and the birds were slow to start moving. Although there were long periods with nothing passing, it ended up a decent watch, with the star bird being a dark phase Pomarine Skua heading north.

An evening dash to Cleadon failed to get the Bonaparte's Gull. Hopefully it  won't give me the run-around like the last two years.
