From the Clifftop

Having spent the last two early mornings on chilly bits of Walland Marsh, I decided on some house-based seawatching in comfort this morning.

Unusually, I was able to keep this up for over three hours, till 10 am, and saw a good variety. A Great Skua almost immediately was my first since Christmas Day; these are not as rare in winter as they used to be, but still good to see. 46 Red-throated Divers , 22 Gannets, 21 auks , 13 Kittiwakes, 2 Common Scoters, parties  of 6 Pintail and 6 Wigeon , and  2 Scoters all flew east into the stiff wind. A single Med Gull, 3 Lapwings E[rare here], 17 Great Crested Grebes on the sea and my first flyby Turnstone made for a longer list than just the "usual suspects ".  A lone Porpoise too.
