For the first time I went seawatching at St.Mary's yesterday afternoon with JM. It was quite a good view from the toilet block apart from the cars passing in front. Large parties of Gannet were feeding distantly but during the two hours we spent we didn't see a single Shearwater sp.
In total we had six Arctic Skua including some dark phase birds go past. Two ganged up to harass the local gulls sitting on the sea which included two Little Gull. Later on at least eight Little Gull flew north just off the rocks on the island. Also a couple of Red Throated Diver went passed north and sat on the sea.
