3 Great Skua
Port Tolbot Docks 11:30 to 16:00 (MHi, RJ)
2 (pm) Arctic Skuas past west at 15:10, otherwise not a great deal of close by movement which contributed to 6 sightings of unidentified skuas at distance, either coming in with the wind or just lost sat on the sea. A Gannet sat on the exposed sand inside the harbour, following a heavy downpour, seems worthy of a mention. As does the fact that the Arctic Skuas were found during "just one last scan', which of course then turned into staying on for 45 more minutes!
Common Scoter (4), Manx Shearwater (3), Fulmar (4), Gannet (1), Whimbrel (6), Arctic Skua (2 pale morph), Kittiwake (11) and Arctic Tern (1)
