Pom


A pre-work sea watch from the raised beach huts from 0545 - 0645 produced 1 shelduck, 1 black-headed gull, 8 great northern diver (all south with one landing offshore), 1 pale phase pomarine skua (lingering 0550 - 0630 when it headed west, following the coastline), 7 manx shearwater, 4 roseate tern feeding with 1 little tern, c50/100+ gannet, c10/20+ kittiwake, 2 sanderling, 2 swift and 2 swallow
I had another quick look after work and at 1600 - 1620 I had 1 roseate tern feeding around and landing on red buoy 3, 6 whimbrel, 2 common gull, 20+ sandwich tern and 20+ swallow 'in off'. There were 2 pale-bellied brent goose off Mudbank too. The pale-bellied-brents have been knocking around since the 6/5 at least.
