Rock-a-Nore seabirds

A bit breezy for clifftop migrants this morning, but an enjoyable seawatch [0650-0810]  produced 20 Gannets, 15 Common Scoter in small groups, a Teal and an Arctic Skua, all moving east, as were a total of 11 Swallows low over the waves. The Arctic Skua “buzzed ” 3 passing Common Scoters, causing them to crashland, but then carried on its way.

There were also about 20 Sandwich and 1 Common Tern.
