Plenty of birds moving on Wednesday, including a few small groups of Brent heading east. I spotted a dark bird on the sea-a Great Skua, pecking at some kind of floating corpse, watched from a few feet away by a Red Throated Diver. I wondered if it was another RTD the Skua had just killed, but will never know of course. I watched for about 20 minutes as more RTDs arrived to watch, eventually 6 encircled the still feeding Bonxie, then flew off.
I also caught my first moths for some weeks-a Satellite and a Pale Brindled Beauty.
Yesterday afternoon at least five adult Mediterranean Gulls were on the sea, suggesting the arrival of the local breeders
