Plan B

With no change in the weather and 17 Long-tailed Skuas seen yesterday off Eshaness it was time to resort to seawatching. A very early start with Dr Marshall for company we made our way to Wats Ness, the weather wasn't doing what we expected but showers were moving through. Unfortunately no id'able Long-tails but 3 Pomarine Skuas flew north as well as 1 Manx Shearwater, with another (or possibly the same) heading south. Plenty of Skua action on the horizon but just to far to be certain. Still better than i would have seen sat at home. Back at home decided to check patch, no surprises. 2 Willow Warblers and the Knot have increased to 10 at the Houb.
