Leach's Petrel belatedly added to year list

26th November 2009 – overcast/heavy showers WSW4/5/6
After the mountainous seas and 60mph winds of yesterday that made observations impossible the day dawned relatively tranquil with just a fresh WSW wind. Observations on the falling tide (0845-1045) were led by a Leach’s Petrel – the first of the year, and 3 Great Skua along with 184 Eider, 80 Kittiwake, 16 Red-throated Diver, 10 Razorbill, 9 Common Scoter, 2 Pintail and single Guillemot and Shag. In addition, the large flock of 3000+ Common Scoter continues in residence although the rough seas hampered viewing.
