With the wind forecast to swing into the NW I headed to the hut this morning hoping for some seabird passage. As it turned out the wind was only WNW and over three hours of effort generated somewhat disappointing results, with very little moving.
However, it was not without its highlights as the second skua of the morning was a smart juvenile Long-tail heading south at 0740hrs. Flamborough recorded a juvenile Long-tailed Skua at 0900hrs and with very few skuas on the move today, it seems likely to be the same bird. Other interest was provided by a single Sooty Shearwater heading north - I probably missed more that were heading past at greater range as larger numbers were seen passing Flamborough. Whilst other sightings included 2 Arctic Skuas, 1 Bonxie, 10 Manx Shearwaters and 2 Red-throated Divers.
