Poor visibility made seawatching even more challenging today, although clearly very few birds were offshore anyway. All I noted was two Great Crested Grebes and eight Red-breasted Mergansers. At high tide, the roost field contained 234 Dunlin, 17 Ringed Plovers and 16 Sanderlings, these scattered at one point by a 2cy Peregrine. Four adult Mediterranean Gulls were in the area. One of the male Stonechats was seen, along with two Skylarks.
